New England has a long, rich history that can be experienced by visiting the abandoned villages, monuments, and cemeteries that cover the region. Here are 36 locations including a recent ghost town found in Connecticut, an eloquent 9-11 memorial in New Hampshire, a cemetery in Vermont that is more like an outdoor art gallery, the grave of an accused vampire in Rhode Island, an Island in Maine, whose residents were forced out by the state, and the New England Holocaust Memorial in Massachusetts. This handy pictorial guide includes visitor information, detailed directions, 180 color photographs, and the history associated with the towns, monuments, and cemeteries scattered across New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Maine, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
