An angel prays atop a grave marker at the Mount Hebron Cemetery in Winchester, Virginia. There are all kinds of angel figures at cemeteries, especially older cemeteries. And in some ways, especially as they age and the weather starts to deteriorate some of their features, the angels start to look just a little creepy. So with Halloween just around the corner (at the time of this writing), I thought I would share a few that we saw in Winchester.
During our trip to Winchester, Virginia, and Washington, DC, we visited the Mount Hebron Cemetery in Winchester. If you know much about Laura and me, you know we love a good cemetery. And this one had lots of interesting history. Here is just a little of what we saw. For starters, the Gatehouse at the Mount Hebron Cemetery was an impressive structure. Although you cannot see it well here, you enter the cemetery by driving through an arched opening at the center of the building.
