I didn’t know what to expect since I never did a cemetery tour. It’s not the kind of thing I would choose to do but my wife was interested in doing this so I went.

This was a beautiful cemetery. Lot's of famous people are buried here. There's even a building where you can trace records back to find ancestors. The grounds are well kept. It's a good stop for a little history on your journey.
