Cemeteries in the Town of Nunda

There are seven cemeteries located in the Town of Nunda. As a joint project of the Town Historian and the Nunda Historical Society, we are working to put all seven online by the Bicentennial Year (2008)

Below is a list of the cemeteries. Those with a link have been listed on line.

The Nunda Historical Society would like to thank Town Historian Val Griffing, former historian Sally Hall, and everyone else who have contributed to the compiling of these lists. The descriptions of the cemeteries found below were written by Sally Hall.
