The little town of Goshen is located just up the street and around the bend from our place. There’s not much there. A few businesses and some homes line the streets of this quaint Ohio town. But, hidden just out of view, lies an interesting cemetery, filled with unique tombstones and buildings. Sometimes the best finds, are those just hidden out of view, under our noses.
A whimsical graveyard. Great perspective.
I just love walking through cemeteries. I love the peace and quiet of them and definitely also like taking pictures of all the tomb stones. Lovely photos.
Old graveyards always have such interesting subjects for photos.
Every little town in the midwest has a cemetary like that hidden around the bend. If you want to see the real impact of World War II just walk down the rows of any of those cemetaries and I think you will find it quite an experience.
Indeed, it seems so. Thanks.
I do love a cemetery, and this one is lovely. Great photos. Wonderful commentary.
It was peaceful and because it was Memorial Day, there were folks out and about placing flower.s
My husband and I spend a lot of time exploring old cemeteries. These photos are fabulous.
Thanks Diana. 🙂
I love taking my camera to cemeteries – and it is always great to find a unique one right under your nose! Great find/photos!
I love this. My mom always took me when I was little to old cemeteries. We would make pencil sketches over the stones we couldn’t read to uncover their secrets. Seemed dark to other people..I enjoyed it.
This also reminds me of my grandmother. I don’t know if you read ” There is Beauty In Life and In Death”..it is about her.
Thank you for the memories!
Em, pencil sketches, I remember those.
One of my favorite American traveling moments was stopping in the middle of Idaho and checking out a frontier graveyard. There are almost too many stories there to think of when you walk through one–all the family connections, the epitaphs and the symbolism. Great photos!
Amazing how artistic gravestones were back then. Great shots.
Lovely photo essay. I find graveyards so fascinating. I wonder, how old was the oldest grave stone? Some looked up there in years. The stump photo reminded me so of Shel Silverstein’s “The Giving Tree.” So poignant.
I didn’t really pay attention to the dates. I do that next time.
You need to visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bellevue,_Ohio
Tina, I’ll have to check it out when I’m that way sometime.
We camped near a small cemetery this past weekend. It had a plaque with the occupants’ names and how they left this earth. Most of them were from the late 1800s to early 1900s. I will post pics on my blog soon.
WOw. Thanks Melanee.. see any ghosts?
Gone off to sleep
no one weeps
but they keep
the remain under the green
andits quiet and serene
each got a note
sometimes they vote
when they leave their earthy bed
and stroll never fled
they play a game
but we can not see
its about , who will visit me
some are sure
about their children’s feel
they love the flowers they get
or just silence no words to speak
from beneath, they can hear
but its your side
you can not hear nor see
as they watch you walk past them
except one guy 😉
he takes their pictures and blog them
exactly,. Thaks kalabalu.

I love old cemeteries. We wandered through one on Memorial Day (after visiting a relative’s grave). There’s something so peaceful, yet engaging about them.
Yes, true. Thanks.
Cemeteries are fascinating.
Indeed. Thanks Toni.
Something melancholic about old graves set against lush greens… it’s as if the world goes by and grows vibrantly without care for those who now lay still beneath the ground…
I love graveyards. Your photos are great 🙂
Love these… 😀
The dead are given quite spacious accommodations there, aren’t they?
Yes indeed. Thanks Gregory.
