The Tory Hill Church with graveyard on side and back is located on Rte. 112, "Buxton Lower Corner," in Buxton.

The church was built in 1822 as the Tory Hill Meeting House. Paul Coffin was the minister at Tory Hill Church for 63 years and he and his family are buried in the cemetery.

Also in the cemetery is a monument to Kate Douglas Wiggin who was inspired by the "white-painted orthodox-meeting house" in her books Old Peabody Pew (1906) and Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (1903).
