In the Yard

Not only are the stones themselves quite beautiful, but so too are the cemeteries and graveyards in which they’re found. These cemeteries, located in Fitchburg and Worcester, Massachusetts, are some of the more visually striking that I have seen.




The Gravestone Girls

A week ago, I attended a lecture given by a member of Gravestone Girls, at the Leominster, MA library. It was a fascinating look at the three major eras of American gravestones that was as informative as it was entertaining.

The Girls’ website, where they sell their beautiful castings of actual gravestones is worth a look, as are – especially – their lectures.
