Blogger Calls Attention to Cemetery's Attractions


Itís time to plan those summer-time family outings. But instead of the same trips to the history museum, the art gallery and the beach, consider a trip to the cemetery! Internationally known cemetery blogger, Joy Neighbors suggests the Lexington Cemetery in her article for The Graveyard Rabbitís online journal this month.

Robinson, IL, June 03, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Joy Neighbors, cemetery speaker, writer and blogger for A Grave Interest, http://agraveinterest.blogspot.com, knows her way around a cemetery. An avowed “Tombstone Tourist,” Neighbors enjoys pointing out the historical, artistic and architectural treasures residing in cemeteries across the country. For the June online issue of the Association of Graveyard Rabbit’s Journal, http://www.thegraveyardrabbit.com/ Neighbors takes her readers for a mini tour of one of Kentucky’s cemetery gems, The Lexington Cemetery.

According to Neighbors the Lexington Cemetery is alive with adventure. If it’s history you want, Henry Clay, “The Great Compromiser,” is interred here. So is John Hunt Morgan, best remembered for leading Morgan’s Raid.

The Lexington Cemetery also offers exquisite sculpture and artwork. Whether is marble statues, granite obelisks, tree stones, bronze busts or white bronze markers, you’ll find it here. Magnificent mausoleums of varying architectural styles hug the contours of the valleys and rise majestically on the hills.

Designed in the Gothic Romanesque style, the Lexington cemetery features natural wooded areas and several lakes. The cemetery also has the designation as an arboretum with over 200 species of trees. Self-guided walks can be conducted with the assistance of maps available at the cemetery office.

According to Neighbors it’s the perfect time to get out and investigate the cemeteries. “Give me a choice between the beach and the cemetery and I’ll spend the day at the graveyard, every time!”

Neighbors’ blogs each Friday about cemeteries and historical topics for A Grave Interest, and the first Tuesday of each month, she features “Cemeteries Worth the Visit.”

The Association of Graveyard Rabbits is a group dedicated to promoting the historical significance of cemeteries, grave markers and family history. The group was named for Frank Lebby Stanton’s poem, The Graveyard Rabbit. The online Journal publishes weekly and monthly articles by members.
