West Cemetery
Middlebury, VT
United States

Just to the south of campus are two small cemeteries, the more historically significant of which is West Cemetery. Here are buried many of Middlebury College's founders, including Gamaliel Painter, Seth Storrs, and Horatio Seymour, as well as many other benefactors. There is even Prince Amun-Her-Khepesh-Ef, a two-year old Egyptian prince who died in 1883 B.C.E., but whose mummy was on display in the Sheldon Museum when the humidity of Vermont became the impetus for its deterioration.

History

The West Cemetery's first burials were in 1793.
