Elmwood Cemetery



Elmwood Cemetery contains Michigan's Oldest Jewish Cemetery, from which came the last four in this series. The first two are from Elmwood proper. Thanks to V, I found Grave Addiction | Facebook on Facebook. It might be a place for those of use interested to post photos and exchange info.

I like taking pictures of old Cemeteries. You really took some nice shots of this historic place.

Hi Mary,

What a beautiful cemetery. The sculptures and gravestones are fantastic.

A Cemetery is a place for reflection. I like walking around, reading the poems on the greystones etc. And imagine the stories of the families lying there. It's very peaceful.

Best regards
Asta

I love strolling through old cemeteries. I have several pictures taken in the cemetery in Idaho City, Idaho, among others. Love the ones you've posted.

Thanks Asta and Climbin

I do love old cemeteries--my parents did too.

It's hauntingly beautiful.

Thanks! I probably should have brushed off the pine needle--didn't think of it at the time.

Fascinating stuff, Mary. And great photos, too!

Thanks, Jacob. I'm eager to go somewhere new, but we have a deadline with the Rolandale house.
