Potter's Field

The Ruth Cofer Cemetery is where the local indigent are buried. According to the newspaper, the cemetery is supposed to be filled up before the end of this year. It has been in existence since 1933. Although it is a sad place, it is peaceful and the view is nice.

Linking with Skywatch Friday.

I find old cemetaries fascinating. They're great to photograph and contain so much history. One of the interesting things about living in New England is that there is no shortage of cemetaries, many of which date back to the 1600 and 1700's. I'm always finding them in places you wouldn't suspect around here. I'm sure there are many more which I've not noticed along the roads I regularly travel. It looks like the headstones in this particular picture are very worn, considering they've only been around since 1933. I'd imagine since these are indigent graves, less expensive tombstones were used. Very interesting!
