Colerain Burying Grounds, Nashville

Coleraine Burying Grounds

This stone cairn is located on the north side of Major Mackenzie Dr. west of Huntington Rd. in the Nashville area of the City of Vaughan.  

The burial grounds was  associated with the Colraine Wesleyan Methodist Church which was located on the north side of Colraine Rd.  There are no longer any head stones on the grounds just the cairn which is located at the front of the acreage.  There is also very little information on this cemetery and the Twp of Vaughan in 1968 indicates this in the inscription that the cairn is dedicated to those interned here "known and unknown". 

This property today is owned and maintained by the City of Vaughan.
