Wow! I got some of the greatest emails last week after the first post about graveshelters (so I’m thankfully not alone about thinking how interesting these are!).
At Little Vine Primitive Baptist Church (they also hold an annual Sacred Harp singing at this church):
carport style, green painted concrete surface.
a couple of stacked stone monuments called ‘rock cairn’, covered in resurrection fern:
these are called ‘comb graves’ – monuments in which two slabs are positioned together to make a triangular, gable shape:
…and here it’s done with what look like fence sections:
Fairview Church Cemetery – and see the hand-lettered sign there on the left? It makes me wonder if the gentleman who paints all these similar signs all over…well, particularly west-central Alabama – attends church here. I’d love to meet him.
carport-style with chain link fencing and grass carpet. Highly decorated.
Later this week I’ll post more from South Alabama.
