Western Cemetery is located at 2 Vaughan Street in Portland, Maine (Cumberland County). The coordinates are 43° 38' 42" N, 70° 16' 27" W.

Western Cemetery was established in 1829, and was active until 1910. It is the second oldest cemetery in the city. I took all of the photos on this page while walking the paths through the cemetery. The grass was extremely high, which prevented walking around many of the gravestones. There are many old gravestones, but several have been damaged. The cemetery is maintained by the city.
