South End Burial Ground


Lion Gardiner, South End Burial Ground

Tombstones in this East Hampton cemetery rightfully occupy prime real estate smack in the middle of town. The earliest gravestones are from the 17th century and mostly identify the Hampton’s founding families like the Gardiners. The plot used to be the churchyard for East Hampton’s first meeting house.

I thought it appropriate to shoot this photo with black and white film (remember that?).
