This is an AWESOME Cemetery, it's so BIG. Very interesting to see all the different tombstones. It's fun to drive around and see all the wildlife, they feel right at home. I actually have a father in law buried here, and it's nice to visit.

Beautiful architecture. The chapel building is on the national register of historic buildings. Really a stunning small building. The cemetery is also a wonderful place for a leisurely bike ride.
