It’s hard to know exactly the date of this photograph. The view is in front of the office building. Oxen were frequently used to haul the granite up to the cemetery on sledges. The arch was erected in 1873. To see the image at full size, click on the photo above. (photo courtesy of Oak Grove Cemetery).
One thought on “Early Days at Oak Grove”
Greetings! Was just wondering around looking for information on Mourning and Victorian Custom. I have found your place absolutely fabulous! A wealth of information and such profound History carved in stone, if ever I can come that far up the coast, I certainly hope to visit this place. Thank you, and I shall return often. LMD
