Hope Cemetery

TIME : 2-18 11:51:03

Barre's cemetery, 1mi north of US 302 on VT 14, celebrates the artistic prowess of generations of local stone carvers. The whimsical tombstones here include a man and his wife sitting up in bed holding hands, smiling for eternity; a granite cube balanced precariously on a tombstone's corner; a giant soccer ball and a small airplane. If a cemetery can ever be a work of art, this one is! It's open to the living all the time.
