SCOVELL – EVANS – WAYS CEMETERY


On the north side of Ridge Rd., where the tracks for the Niagara Falls/Lake Ontario Railroad crosses over and continues down thru Model City is the old Leander K. Scovell buring ground. In an open field behind the barn sits this 140 year old cemetery. Surrounding the stones is a stone fence with a hand-wrought gate that still swings freely on its fossilized large stone posts. Inside the fence are nine visible grave markers and seven readable foot stones. The earliest buriel date found was 1839 and the last, Leander K. Scovell died 1887. Leander and his son Leander W. have long since been removed to the Lewiston Cemetery behind the Presbyterian Church.
