      Candice, I have visited many cemeteries and I am fascinated by their stories. Thank you for the link to your post! Your investigation and many pictures were a delight to add to my blogging experience.

  1. Did you know that many cemeteries are are actually city parks designed for folks to walk through and sit and relax or contemplate? :-) :-) :-)

      Yes Mike I did! We actually went to an opening lecture at our Telfair/Jepson Museum about this very theme. Another cemetery I really enjoy is Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, Georgia. This cemetery is an active park where residents relax, tour and take many pictures daily. Special events are scheduled there year round. I’m sure you will enjoy these other post too.
