Pepperrell Park -
Land bequeathed to the City of Saco by Sir William Pepperrell in 1798.  Used at the turn of the 19th century, 138 graves originally.  23 were moved to Laurel Hill.  There are just a handful of stones left.  Located on School Street.  A single new monument lists the names of those who are buried there.
