As a family tree researcher, I find cemeteries fascinating and sometimes the tombstones have great information. My kids liked walking around seeing the old tombstones and it is really close to everything else.
I live near by, so one day just drove through to look at the head stones, names, flowers, etc. I was looking for angels and found a few. First time I've driven through a cemetery other than for a funeral. It was uplifting. I couldn't believe the old dates on some of the markers. Wow!
If you love walking around old cemeteries, you will love this one. So much history is here, you can even find the creator of Barq's root beer buried here.
