Bookseller Mary Hill likes to scout out the town’s quirky markers and gravestones. “Up on Newfane Hill, west of town, is the ‘whipping post’ marker at the site of the original village before it was moved to the valley in the early 1800s. And in the Fayetteville Cemetery, up the hill behind The Newfane Country Store, a townsman’s headstone is inscribed, ‘He was a real piece of work.'”
