Explore Old Cemeteries, The Remains and more!

St Henry's Chapel - St Henry's Chapel, near the entrance in Calvary Cemetery. The chapel was built in 1902 and still used for services. The cemetery was formed in the 1870's, replacing the earlier Catholic cemetery, called St Henry's Cemetery, which was located where the county faigrounds are now due to no room to expand. Over twenty years, the graves were moved from the old cemetery to Calvary, with the remains of unknown deceased being buried where this chapel now stands.

Old Bury Ground, Salem, MA. Some of the people accused to perform witchcraft are buried here, but did not deserve a gravestone.

Overgrown old car junkyard    Other people look at this and see junk.  I see families gathered in the front yard as Dad brings home the shiney new car.  So many memories attached to each of those rusted hulks.

There was at Auburn an old, abandoned cemetery. It was nearly in the heart of the town, yet by night it was as gruesome a place as the most dismal of human moods could crave. The railings about the plots were prostrate, decayed, or altogether gone. Many of the graves were sunken, from others grew sturdy pines, whose roots had committed unspeakable sin.

I don't know why abandoned churches fascinate me. Perhaps it's the architecture, or tecture, or wondering what special things went on there 'in the day.' [The Untold Stories of Abandoned Houses – Photography Showcase]
