A Peek into the Past...

Well, a peek into the past of my town I should say. My quaint little town is filled with the local barber, a coffeehouse, an old furniture store, a bank and even a library. The little town has a population of almost 520 people, 1/4 of which are mostly Amish (which isn't good for the photographer in me :) I love the village, especially after being away at college for so long. Also in the village are two cemeteries...stay with me...I know a lot of people find walking through, or even going to a cemetery slightly on the scary side. But for some reason I find it relaxing and peaceful. It's probably the crazy side of me. But, I find it fun and interesting to walk through one and look at all of the old tombstones seeing who lived before you and find out what there names were and what they did. I'm a huge ancestry geek, so as soon as I got home I was Googling most of the names I had found. Here's just a few of the pictures I took on my little adventure with mom.

There were so many graves of soldiers that had fought in wars. We even found one dating back to the Revolutionary War.

Hope to see you soon!
