L.L. Bean and cemetery association reach deal ensuring access to historic graveyard

L.L.Bean and cemetery agree on better access

FREEPORT, Maine (Portland Press Herald/Peter McGuire) — L.L. Bean and the Mann Cemetery Association have reached an agreement that resolves a dispute over access to a historic cemetery on Flying Point.


The Freeport Project Review Board on Tuesday night unanimously approved a joint site plan amendment from L.L. Bean and the Mann Cemetery Association. The new site plan includes the creation of an access corridor to the Mann Cemetery from Flying Point Road and the transfer of Bean property to the association. Reference to a traditional access road to the graveyard across Bean’s adjacent Flying Point paddling school was removed.

“This amendment was developed in collaboration with the Mann Cemetery Association and we sincerely hope it resolves all remaining differences L.L. Bean has with its neighbors,” Mike Mahoney, a Bean senior vice president for legal and public affairs, told the board Tuesday.
