Historic Pelham Cemetery on the Eastern shore of City Island is a most desirable site as a final resting place for Island residents. Gently sloping toward the water, the cemetery creates a sense of serenity to those visiting it. An occasional boat passing by adds a pleasant nautical atmosphere to the surroundings. A walk through the cemetery is like a trip back in time to a New England burial ground. Here, on quaintly carved tombstones, are names that are found on the Island's streets, with military titles dating back to all the wars this country has been in, and seafaring ranks that harken long ago voyages.
