The cemetary near my home is quite old- the earliest markers dating back to before the end of the American Revolution. And it is still an active cemetary, with new sites being opened every week. Our town is relatively small in population, about 1600 people over 25 square miles. The cemetary is large - about 35-40 acres. It is a quiet place, like most cemtaries are :-) I have always been amazed by the variety of markers and stones present there. Here is a small collection of some of the markers I thought here interesting. I still have more area to "explore", so more photos to come in the future. Hope you enjoy!
