Portland Arch Cemetery in Fountain, Indiana
little Indiana and family enjoyed tromping through this old Indiana cemetery. It was so spacious and very, very old. I could tell that even without seeing the massive tree trunk with many, many rings when we first walked in.
But the neatest part about this one for photography purposes were the unique arrangements of the headstones! So many were propped up against trees–and each other!
In fact, we even found a few headstones in a prickly briar patch. Now that’s unusual. It may not be what the original folks intended but it looked interesting.
If you like walking through old cemeteries, you’ll like this Fountain County cemetery for sure!
The headstones are lovely, the dates are old, and it’s so peaceful. There’s nothing else around it. Need to get in the Halloween spirit? Head to the Hoosier Horror Blog Hop for heaps more haunting fun!
