It closed in 1843, but today is open to the public, where you'll see more than 1,000 headstones. According to the University of Calgary, it may be the oldest cemetery in the Maritime Provinces.
In British Columbia, one of my favorite cemeteries is Ross Bay Cemetery, where artist Emily Carr is buried. Here's a documentary video produced by the British Columbia Provincial Capital Commission.
