These are all scattered around Colonial Williamsburg. The last one is the Jones Family Cemetery, also known as the Secretary's Office Graveyard. The gate was locked so I couldn't wander around. It is very small though. I have seen photos from ghost hunts with mists coming up out of the graves! Spooky! If you are obsessed with old graveyards like I am, I found this interesting yet sad story from the Virginia Gazette that ran in 1918 about the graves of Williamsburg. You can read that HERE and you can see more old stuff by visiting Roan @ Rubbish By Roan

  6. I'd guess you'd find lots of old stuff around old Williamsburg. That first gate is most interesting...it looks like someone wanted to be creative with that bottom piece, but wasn't quite sure how to go about it! :)

  22. Gates have also its histories, I feel☆☆☆ I sometimes think about the differences of the cemetery of ours and the other countries. ;-)
