Having a blog has heightened my awareness and nudged me to document more of the world around me.
For some time now, I've passed this spot, on the prairie country road, imagining what it might have been in an earlier life.
Would you like to take a wild guess as to what this once was?
This shot gives you a more accurate idea of how far away, from the main road, it actually is.
Standing at the bottom of the hill, it is not visible above the rail fence.
Not having my boots on today, there was no way I would be tramping my way through the tall grass. I did not want to tangle with a snake on this fine Spring day.
So this is what I have found out since taking the photos....
It is possibly the only mid 1850's early family cemetery, in the region, featuring a mausoleum.
Quite by chance, I came across a written article and photo showing the name of the ruins. That piece of information gave me a name to search on the Internet.

Now I'm wondering what happened to those who were placed in the mausoleum before the walls came tumbling down...
