Old Headstones


Our town has a pioneer cemetery dating back to the 1850's when this part of the country was being settled. The difference in headstones from the 1850's to present are amazing. The ornate details on the old headstones is beautiful. I will post photos over the next few days of some interesting headstones.

That's how it is in our cemeteries too. I love to look at this old, ornate markers.

Love the pic and the details. You have motivated me to do a series on the old cemetaries scattered around here. I find their history facinating.

A nice project... To have a Net record of some of these unique old headstones.

what a coincidence, i posted a pic of a graveyard yesterday, and said we are planning a graveyard series too! Your pix are great, we have 3 old cemetaries also dating back to the mid 1800s, we love wandering around taking photos of them!
