The Collegeport Cemetery is a large open space facing the bay, but there's a huge expanse of land and only about 20 graves.

One grave, interestingly enough, is that of a Civil War soldier - a Northerner from Ohio.

The grave below is that of a 16 year-old-girl who died in 1924. Nearby is her grandmother's grave with the date of death being 1922.
