This bucolic community cemetery located at 184 Pleasant Grove Road, formerly known as Kline cemetery, contains graves dating to the early 1800s. A charming Gothic Revival chapel, built in 1888, sits on the southern edge of the site. Noted interments include Revolutionary War veterans; 19th-century schoolgirl and diarist Carrie Manning; and intellectual and artistic luminaries, including William Strunk, Peter Debye, Carl Becker, Michael Kammen, Thomas Gold, Alexander Kira, and more.
