Crown Hill Cemetery
Crown Hill is an old cemetery that is still in use today. I've passed by it many times, and I've often wondered why it has these brick towers. Could they have served some purpose at one time, or were they meant to be merely decorative?
The oldest graves I saw dated from the 1920s. Many of the markers have the names and dates worn away by weather. Some were obviously home-made, cast out of concrete with the names scribed in with a sharp tool.
There are numerous military headstones. Most of these old soldiers fought in the Second World War, but I saw a few who served in World War One and Korea.
The photos seen here are reduced from the originals. And of course, those originals are on my Picasa web album. The full set includes 19 images.
