Great Pasture Road Cemetery

Great Pasture Road Cemetery, also known as Old Redding Cemetery, is located on Great Pasture Road off of Route 107 in Redding, Connecticut. The majority of the stones date from the late 1700s and 1800s. Many of the men interred here are veterans of the Revolutionary War; several are listed as combatants in the "Danbury Raid," when British General William Tryon attacked Danbury, Connecticut on 21 April 1777, nearly destroying the town.
