Rural initiative places Maine’s 2nd national cemetery in Jonesboro


by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

A process begun in 2015 will culminate next year when a new national cemetery opens alongside Route 1 in Jonesboro. The new veterans cemetery will be only the second of its kind in Maine, after Togus National Cemetery in Kennebec County. Togus has been closed to new veteran interments since the 1960s.
