There is so much freaking history in old graveyards.
My dad has some land over to the West of Nashville that has a couple of small, abandoned graveyards dating back to the early 1800s, and I find it to be incredibly interesting. This goes hand-in-hand with yesterday's post about my fascination with history. There's so much you can learn about a culture through their graveyards.
For example, in one of the graveyards on my dad's land, there was a rash of deaths all occurring at the same time, literally within days of each other. It leaves you to wonder why. Was there a sickness that came around? Was there a tragic accident? I'm betting on sickness based on the fact that it was a bunch of children and older people.
At the end of the day. SUPER interesting. I wouldn't live next door to one, though. That's just creepy.
