As a kid I used to play in this huge cemetery. Most of it is secluded along rolling hills and ending at woods. The woods were huge and we lived on the other side.
Exploring the woods one day we walked out into this cemetery and it became a place where we visited when we were particularly adventurous. There are graves here from the early 1800’s up to current markers. Some of my childhood friends are here.
Today I went there, as I often do, to pay my respects and think. If you go to the back there are secluded spots to walk around and look out unto the woods which drop down to a valley. You can even see the water tower in the distance.
My mother use to tell the story of the Alabama girl (Mother) who played in Hall Cemetery with her friends while the adults were at the church furneral. It was one of her favorite times — thanks for sharing.
I visit this cemetery quite often. It’s peaceful and reminds me of my childhood. – thank you for stopping by.
