Come and take a free guided tour of the Western Cemetery in the West End of Portland. This was the primary burial ground for Portland from 1830 to 1852, many Irish immigrants and others were interred there. It has suffered from neglect for many years. In recent years, the Stewards of the Western Cemetery have been restoring the area. Tours are offered every Sunday at 2 PM or you can request a special tour at tours@westerncemetery.me
