Description

A hard place to turn into and on a hill and very easy to miss without directions. I have missed this cemetery for years and I look for very hard for them and I have a co-pilot who does to. The fence around has little crosses every so often which is a nice touch but needs a touch of paint. A large blank area where a church stood , I imagine, and would be seen here for many miles. A stunning metal headstone in a state of only slight corrosion, after many years, showing it was the best choice. Rust, in this case is it's own worst enemy forming a protected layer of rust , slowing down the process of corrosion. Orchardville[the post office only accepted the name "Orchard'] was very busy in the late 1800's with businesses , schools and churches but rapidly declined after the turn of the century[1900].
