The drive is nice but if you walk up early or near dusk you'll see deer and sometimes wild turkeys. It is a steady climb that levels after first curve. Very interesting old cemetery.

This is a beautiful cemetery - it is old, but you can feel the love by all the mementos left by loved ones. It is not necessarily a manicured cemetery, but this adds to its charm. We went in the afternoon; it was breezy, peaceful,...More

Yes, it's a cemetery, but a very old one. There is a quaint small chapel where our daughter got married. It's a good walk-through and imagine who the people were or what their lives were like many, many years ago.

We have visited this cemetery for years. There is great history here. You must get out of the car and walk around. It has old markers which tell stories of old. The newer graves are elegant. The grounds are pristine. Way up a windy hill...More
