I’ve found a new set of graveshelters in the Jasper area of Walker County, Alabama, and have made the intention to make a book of my Alabama findings (100+!) in 2022. Some are over a century old and barely vertical, others were soundly built and can go on much longer; some have character and detail, others purely for function; some now hidden in fields and others in large public cemeteries.
I’ll also be putting together a program with video presentation for communities.
Can’t even say the hours dedicated to finding graveshelters with site visits and internet research and interviews, but it’s so satisfying to be able to document these structures.
These are at Hunters Chapel Holy Church of Christ in Jasper, Alabama
