The cemetery is located just off the Old New Preston Turnpike between South Kent and New Preston.  The road name in 1998 is called Cherniske Road.  It was first called "The New Preston Burying-place" and was started as a private burying ground about 1760 on land owned by Samuel Hill, Sr.  The town purchased the land Nov. 5, 1794 the deed for which can be found in New Milford, CT.  It was enlarged in 1803 and has been enlarged at least a couple of times since then.
