Cemeteries, by definition, are a great source for the history of the area in which they reside.
Lee is blessed with three that abound with a plethora of stories of their inhabitants:
Beautiful Fairmount, with its panoramic view of the Berkshire Hills;
St. Mary’s, which neighbors the equally scenic Greenock Country Club;
quaint little South Lee.
