This is my favorite cemetary. It's so beautiful & peaceful to walk around in. It also has such a rich history. A wonderful place to go to reflect & learn.
It was like something out of a story book. Beautiful and rich in history. So glad I got to se me it in person.
An interesting cemetery, we went to see a part that was in Stephen King’s pet sematary and where Al Brady is. It’s a pretty stop when exploring Bangor.
I always love walking through cemeteries because they're all beautiful and full of history, but this one has an ethereal fairytale feel to it like you're walking into Wonderland. Its my favorite cemetery ever.
Beautiful and peaceful. Great place,to walk.
