This beautiful cemetery is set along the river. There are rolling hills and winding drives that calm you as you make your way to visit those who have passed.

Great for a stroll. You will get your workout going up and down the winding roads. This cemetery runs alongside of the river trail/ There are some really beautiful markers from days gone by.

Nicknamed "Marlboro Country" by the local residents. A surprising number of dignitaries have found their final rest, here. The asphalt surface of the road will have to be replaced, soon.
