The Star Gazing Letterbox is located at RI Historical Cemetery #19 on Abbott Run Valley Road in Cumberland,RI. You can park at the Arnold Mills Community Center parking lot just down the street, or across from the cemetery on Glen Oaks Drive along the street.

Enter the cemetery at the tomb erected by Joseph Whipple and proceed uphill to the back of the cemetery. Along the back of the cemetery towards the southwest you will find an oblisk shaped grave stone with an urn on top. This is the final resting place of Bryant and Freelove Robinson and their daughter Deborah. At the base of this grave stone in the back you will find what you are looking for. Be careful of raspberry bush thorns as you reach for the box. Please re-hide well as this cemetery is regularly maintained and frequently visited.

Inside cemetery at entrance is a granite block with a bronze plaque which reads: "Within this New England hillside there rest 45 Patriots of American Revolution and 4 members of the Grand Army of the Republic." Please be respectful of the grave markers during your visit.
