Old St. John's Cemetery is a graveyard located in Kingsport, which Anne Shirley liked to visit during her time as a student at Redmond College.

HistoryEdit

"[Kingsport] has other historic spots also, which may be hunted out by the curious, and none is more quaint and delightful than Old St. John's Cemetery at the very core of the town, with streets of quiet, old-time houses on two sides, and busy, bustling, modern thoroughfares on the others. Every citizen of Kingsport feels a thrill of possessive pride in Old St. John's, for, if he be of any pretensions at all, he has an ancestor buried there, with a queer, crooked slab at his head, or else sprawling protectively over the grave, on which all the main facts of his history are recorded."
Anne of the Island, Chapter 4[src]

AppearanceEdit

"There's a big stone wall and a row of enormous trees all around it, and rows of trees all through it, and the queerest old tombstones, with the queerest and quaintest descriptions."
Priscilla Grant describing Old St. John's to Anne Shirley[src]

GravesEdit

The cemetery holds many graves, including those of:

  • Albert Crawford
  • Alexander Ross
  • "a favorite child"
  • An unnamed midshipsman

It also holds a monument to the memory of Nova Scotian soldiers who fell in the Crimean War.
