One immediately gets the impression that this is an old cemetery. As I wandered around taking photos I was pleased how well kept up the cemetery grounds. I was glad for the billboards which shared lots of information. I also appreciated the rod iron fence surrounding the property. A real jewel of a cemetery and in area, not large. This cemetery is worth a visit.
Well kept and informative. A pleasant walk.
