St. Peter Cemetery provides a peaceful respite from the speed, sound and snarl of I-84. Located in the northwest corner of Danbury, Connecticut next to Lake Kenosia, St. Peter Cemetery is the final resting place for thousands of friends, neighbors, and family members from the greater northern Fairfield County area.

Over 110 acres of level, tree-lined roads, the cemetery is a popular walking area with area residents. Popular areas include the Priest’s Circle where local deceased clergy are interred and the Hull Monument, a 40-grave lot marked with a massive obelisk.
