Cemeteries are unique places in our lives. Some are beautiful, some are historic, and some are even entertaining. There is a quiet sadness about all cemeteries because they are the final resting places of our loved ones. We intend to post pictures here of cemeteries and head stones that are original photographs. We are looking for beauty, dignity, funny and above all something interesting. Feel free to comment and to contribute. We will provide a mail box if you want to contribute.

New and Old

I have been stopping in any cemetery I happen upon. I was in Arizona and passed a rather modern one, but it was inconvenient to stop. Consequently I have no pictures of it for you. I do have some of an older Cemetery, one where I actually have performed burial services (I am an Episcopal Priest among other things.) This is a Cemetery that dates back to the Mid 1700's in it's use. It is located in Southington, CT. This Plaque is located on a large stone which is engraved with the contained words. More pictures from this interesting cemetery will be posted soon.

As for Arizona, though I don't have cemetery pictures here is one of some American Indian ruins that are far older. They predate European settlement and are a part of a National Monument called Casa Grande. Yes, burials were found here though there were apparently more cremations than burials. More next time.
