  • Was a nice, serene cemetery. I expected at least a few others around, but we were the only ones in the cemetery so we were able to explore at our own pace. Went as the sun was setting and got some excellent pictures, as well as read about some of the other laid to rest here
  • I'm appalled. I visited on 7/14, 10/14 amd 4/16. First visit there were Confederate Battle Flags and a Firat National Flag, second visit a First National Flag. Visit on Saturday nothing but lemons saying "Black Lives Matter." Put up the Flags and remove the lemons Lexington. I will never buy anything until you do. We went to Fairfield for lunch where there is a huge Battle Flag on I-81. Your loss, Fairfield's gain!
  • Stonewall Jackson is a one that was in Richmond but died he was buried in his own memorial. Called Stonewall Jackson Memorial Cemetary.
