The grave site is nestled deep in the woods.
Local Residents tell tales of hikers walking through the wood meeting people in period clothing. They appear and disappear quite often. While walking near the grave site people have heard horses passing by and at night it is said that floating lanterns light up the woods then disappears.
The Dwyer Hill Pioneer Roman Catholic burial grounds is the oldest known cemetery in Marlborough Township, it has served the community of Irish Catholics around Dwyer Hill and Richmond until circa 1867. The graves are unique in the township and rare in Ontario due to their shallow excavations covered with stones in a low cairn. Theses graves are no longer marked by planks inscribed with paint. Today, the graves are marked with yellow ribbons. The spartan character of the cemetery reflects the hardships of life for early settlers.
