We took a leisurely drive around the cemetery and the artwork on display is amazing. The granite artwork range from soccer balls to chain links to pyramids. I know it sounds crazy but it was worth a drive to check it out. Happy Travels!

We spent about an hour wandering through this cemetery. There is one particular section with some really unusual monuments. But even the "normal" looking ones had some very interesting choices of pictures. Worth it if you're in the area.

Incredible! My friend and I like to take walks through this beautiful cemetery and research the history of the stones. The stones are made using granite from the local Quarries and are just gorgeous.

No. The roads are too narrow and it also would be disruptive to mourners who visit the cemetery. Cars may drive through or you can walk.
