Blanchard Cemetery

November 2012


I saw gravestones ranging from the 1760s through the 1850s, with the majority falling at the earlier end of the spectrum, making this near-forgotten little hillside plot somewhat of a historical marvel! Of course, as this would've been a veritable frontier back then, some headstones are quite sparse and crude, sometimes giving only names. Lots of beautiful folk art carvings, though.
