There are statues everywhere. This cemetery is much different than the Randolf Cemetery we visited the week before.
The gravestones and markers are as big as they seem. This one is from Oct. 9, 1890.
There are so many different styles of grave markers and headstones here.
The numbers on these gravestones lead us to believe they were patients of the Lunatic Asylum.
Uh Oh! Do we call that a typo? Perhaps they were using patients as labor to make these gravestones. We know they had many businesses there (read the blog entry about the Lunatic Asylum on Bull Street) and were a self sustaining community within a city.
Many graves had these little markers on them.
It turned out to be the burial place for cadavers used to teach medical students at USC.
The place was well cared for and even had a bench for sitting and paying respect to the bodies buried here.
