This is cemetery was established in 1854. I hope to return again.
🍂Ready for Fall🍂 🎃Mostly Halloween (my fav holiday)🎃 🍁Thanks to @SinuousCollection for the comfy flannel🍁 ⚰️Spent yesterday in the Pioneer Cemetery in Sierra Madre with veterans from the Civil War, WWI, WWII⚰️ 📸 @jasonadduci
Grafton Cemetery close to the ghost town of Grafton, Utah. I found it striking how young the inhabitants of this pioneer burial ground were when they passed. ... If you're a history buff or vintage lover, or are visiting nearby Zion National Park and want to go on a little side trip, you might want to stop here. The town is small, but film aficionados may appreciate that it has been used as a set (see "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid"). ... More travel tidbits from my personal adventures yet to come! . . . #burialground #pioneercemetery #history #historic #ghosttown #tombstone
Cesare & Emilia (Brunori) Rossetti came to early ends, dying 362 days apart. They left behind 2 children under 10, who then went to live with their uncle in the Central Valley. . #pioneercemetery #californiahistory #italianimmigrants #americandreams #fancytombstones #handcarved #stonecarving #masonry #stonework #stoneflowers #rimini #rossetti #famigliarossetti #brunori #taphophile #cemeteryenthusiast #cemeterywandering #walkingamongthedead
Evening cemetery walks with my Ginger are quite peaceful #housesitting #pioneercemetery
I'm not sure what exactly made me start doing this but when I pass by graves in old cemeteries like this one, I always say the persons name outloud. I've heard it said that you're only really gone after your name is spoken outloud for the last time, so maybe I feel like this brings a tiny piece of them to life for a few seconds. Maybe it was important that they not be forgotten. I wonder, what memories were running through the mind of the person standing here mourning 100+ year ago? How were these people remembered when their loved ones came to visit? I took down a few names to research later. ____ . . . #pioneercemetery #pioneer #historic #history #1800s #oregonexplored #oregon #archaeology #headstones #beautiful #respect #pacificnorthwest #outwest #thepast #peaceful #memories #research #cemetery #gravestones

In Nevada. Took my friend to the pioneer cemetery in Goldfield to visit what certainly the best gravestone inscription in the state, and just maybe in the whole country. #death #cemetery #skeleton #skull #pioneercemetery #grave #ramskull #grimreaper #scythe #nevada #goldfield

Coming across Bethany Pioneer cemetery happened by chance while making my way to Green Acres Farm Sanctuary, which is just up the road. Didn’t have much time to explore that day, so will definitely go back! . . . #bethanypioneercemetery #pioneercemetery #pioneercemeteries #theamericanrestingplace #finalrestingplace #lensbaby #burnside35 #blackandwhitephotography #fa_sacral
Sugar Grove Friends Church was founded in 1823 by Quakers who moved to central Indiana from North Carolina. The building seen here was built in 1851. There was a mass migration from the south because the Quakers didn't want to be seen as supporting slavery. The church is now inactive, but used regularly for over 100 years. The building and adjacent cemetery were added to the National Register if Historic Places in 2000. The building is in remarkably good condition. The screen can still be seen that was lowered to offer separate services for men and women as was the custom at the time. There are around 1,300 burials in the cemetery, but many are worn and impossible to read. Many of the Guilford Township pioneers are said to have been buried here. #plainfieldindiana #indianahistory #indianacemeteries #hendrickscountyindiana #hendrickscountyindianacemeteries #nationalregisterofhistoricplaces #history #quaker #pioneercemetery #churches #friendschurch #headstones #graves #gravestones #graveyard #cemeteries
The America Resting Place: 400 Years of History Through Our Cemeteries. Cannot believe how we didn’t come across this gem sooner! We haven’t had a chance to really dive in yet, but even with a quick skim through, this book will definitely be enlightening and useful. Now if only we had all the money to travel, explore and enjoy all the locations within the pages! #theamericanrestingplace #marilynyalom #reidyalom #historiccemeteries #pioneercemetery #taphophile #graveyards #cemetery #cemeteries
Century-old Greenwood Hills Cemetery is the final resting place for many early Oregon pioneers and prominent settlers of Portland. Platted in 1882, Greenwood Hills began as the Portland Masonic Cemetery and opened in 1884 with fifteen graves transferred from the Masonic plot in Lone Fir Cemetery. Gravemarkers in the cemetery vary from old highmarkers to the more modern flat granite markers. Woodmen of the World monuments, carved in the shape of tree trunks, are quite distinctive highmarkers as are the massive, wrought hewn boulders which bear witness to the frontier spirit of several pioneering families. During your visit, you will notice Masonic emblems and inscriptions on many of the gravestones throughout the cemetery. . . . #greenwoodhillscemetery #pioneercemetery #cemetery #finalrestingplace #historiccemeteries #masonicemblems #heartinhand #gravemarkers #oregonhistory #taphophile #blackandwhitephotography
A grave from 1883 in the shape of a split tree trunk (may be a woodsman of the world but couldn’t find the quote for it)
#ienjoywalkingwiththedead #pioneercemetery #gravestones #markingourdead There is a lot to be said about legacy and wanting to be remembered. I want to be burried in the ground sans marker or chemicals, but I do love these old monuments.

This fenced off 50’x50’ overgrown piece of land with no road access plopped down in the middle of a farmers field (seemingly randomly) in rural Missouri is the final resting place of my great great great great GREAT grandparents who died in 1859 and 1870. Only a handful of in tact stones survive and it was so overgrown and infested with ticks and enormous spiders I wasn’t able to find their stone but it is in there. The farmer told me I’m the first visitor who’s ever asked about it since he’d owned the land and was beyond shocked I even knew about it, because you can’t see it from the road and you have to walk half a mile through the cow pasture to reach it. A desolate yet peaceful place. At the time they settled here, this was the farthest west our country reached, and only a few more miles was Indian territory, the unknown. #americanpioneer #anandonedplaces #abandonedcemetery #geneaology #pioneer #pioneercemetery #dadecounty #missouri #ruralmissouri
The Nevada desert....one of the loveliest and loneliest places on earth.

We would go to the Grand Canyon of all places and accidentally find a cemetery, who knew? 👻 #grandcanyon #pioneercemetery #shrineoftheages #cemetery
Bannack State Park didn't disappoint! We took so many pictures I'll have to do multiple posts. Shown here are the entrance to the park, an old dredge site and the cemetery. The video is the view of Bannack from the hill the cemetery is on. #montanaroadtrip #montanastateparks #montana #montanaghosttown #goldrush #golddredge #pioneercemetery #montanasummer
Beautiful tombstone at Pioneer cemetery. #pioneercemetery #tombstone
We took a day trip to Idaho City. Neat old town with an even older cemetery. Out of 200 deaths only 28 died of natural cause. A lot of deaths due to gun fights during the gold rush in 1860. The hubby @the_holzwurm just saw all the old wood 😂. #idaho #daytrip #idahocity #pioneercemetery

The road out to this pioneer cemetery (Ivy Cemetery) in Prescott is rougher than it appears but well-maintained #prescott #washington #wallawallacounty #pioneercemetery #summer2018
Back to #pioneercemetery #kaitangata to my great-great grandmother's grave. In the 22 years the Rollands were in Otago, she was the only death, the only one to remain.
Welcome to the Virginia City, Nevada cemetery. It doesn’t get more “middle of nowhere” that this....
This stone has weathered quite well, 157 years later! The poem is even readable! #beautiful #cemetery_shots #cemetery #pioneercemetery #indiana
Intrigued at the detail and beautiful flowers on Phebe Doddridge's gravestone, died 1861. #cemetery #headstone #gravestone #masonry #art #flowers #pioneercemetery #indiana
I didn't FALL in love with you. I walked into love with you, with my eyes wide open, choosing to take every step along the way. I do believe in fate and destiny, but I also believe we are only fated to do the things that we'd choose anyway. And id choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, Id find you and I'd choose you. ○ ● ○ ● #YouAreMyMagic #mybenny #pioneercemetery #wherewehadoutfirstdate #highschoolsweethearts #31714 #IthoughtILovedYouThen #witchlife #halloweeninaugust

Tucked away past Coxcomb Hill lies Astoria’s first cemetery. Many of those interred were transferred to Oceanview in Warrenton, but for those not claimed, they still lie here. #pioneercemetery #astoriaparks #deadmentellnotales #discoverastoriaparks
One of my favorite old cemeteries and its wonderful old gate! My FIL is interred here as well. A beautiful place to Rest In Peace 😌. #restinpeace #cemetery #oldcemetery #pioneercemetery #oldgate #vintagegate #prairiecemetery #exploringthepast
