Flat Swamp Cemetery No. 2 ( I have yet to locate Flat Swamp Cemetery No. 1) is located on Cemetery Road in Newtown (near the neighborhood of Dodgingtown) Connecticut. It was established in 1805 and was in use until 1852. It is a very small burial ground, and all but a few of the stones are illegible.

Photos were taken 13 April 2015.
