1. Original Town of Bath Lots One and Two Marker
Inscription. The Town of Bath was plotted on land that had belonged to Thomas Lord Fairfax. These two lots were purchased on August 26, 1777, by six men on behalf of a German church. Although the original plan was to build a church and two houses on these lots, instead the property became a burial site known as the Dutch, or Deutsch (German), cemetery. Included in this graveyard are DAR memorials honoring one Revolutionary War patriot, one soldier, and two soldier-patriots.
 
Erected 2001 by Ye Towne of Bath Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
