Those Beautiful Hands, And More Montevallo

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

There's a cemetery in Montevallo -- Reynolds Cemetery -- and it's mostly known as having a monument there as the geographical center of the state of Alabama, but I actually think it's remarkable for a different reason, below.

The monument:
Reynolds Cemetery, Montevallo AL

It's in front of this large rock-stacked structure:

On top: a monument for a couple of people who passed away in the late 1800s:

While it looks like so many other cemeteries from a broad perspective, this one had monuments made by a fantastic artist...

Of course this one doesn't have that beautiful Victorian detail, but done for a First Sergeant in Airborne during WWII, and was interesting nonetheless:

I've put a lot of Montevallo pics here before, but here are just a few from that day's visit:
