In July of 2013 we traveled to Mount Vernon to visit the home and grave site of our Nation's first president, George Washington. Not only is Mount Vernon an awesome location to visit, on the grounds are several burials that most people overlook.
In November of 2015, we traveled to Fall River, Massachusetts and to Oak Grave Cemetery. Our goal for this trip, visit the grave site of Lizzie Borden.
In October of 2008, we traveled to Memphis, Tennessee, and one of the locations that we visited was Graceland. Within the grounds of Graceland, you are aloud to visit the Meditation Gardens that are located just past the swimming pool, and the final resting place of the Presley's.
We have said it many time, if you want to find out the rich history of a town or village, go to the town's cemetery. Evergreen Cemetery in Gettysburg is a prime example, and here you will find many stories of those who where there during the Civil War battle of Gettysburg.
Old town cemeteries always have a story to tell, and the Pioneer Cemetery in Point Pleasant, West Virginia is no different. We stopped at this cemetery on our way out of the town when we were there in the July of 2019 since this was on our way out of town.
On July 27, 2008, we decided to travel to Jamestown, New York and stop at the Lucille Ball Museum, and pay our respects at her grave site.
