I happened to be driving through Burlington to complete some errands, and I took the opportunity to take a stroll through this historic cemetery. The fall colors were past peak at the time, but still had a contrast to the greys of the headstones, and the browns and fading green of New England ground rapidly transitioning into winter.
Second Parish Burial Ground, Burlington, MA
Find a Grave's website, as typical is the go-to place to find information about this burial site. It notes that the site dates to the 1730s and was utilized for the Revolutionary War, as well as veterans of the war of 1812.
The headstone above, of a Reverend, features this fascinating art work that seems like something created for a movie. I'm not terribly well acquainted with trends, however this strikes me as very unusual.
