Mooresville, Limestone County, Alabama
The town of Mooresville has this website. Please visit this site and let them know how much you appreciate all their preservation efforts. This cemetery is a personal bucket list project of mine. I hope to go up there in the fall when it's cooler and the snakes have all but disappeared for the season. A friend I met that had the same cemetery interests has made a few trips to this cemetery and collected some of the broken stones from under mounds and mounds of leaves and attempted to piece them together. So much more work needs to be done here.
I hope some day that this is accomplished and this town's cemetery, one of the first in Alabama, is restored and maintained.
I just decided to take a summer hike back to the woods to see what this place appeared like in the heat of the summer, how accessible it is and the
I often prepare myself for just about anything. This day, I decided to take my trusty Labrador Dixie with me and just make it a nice walk in the woods.
Much to my dismay, it was completely inaccessible. I knew it was vastly overgrown a couple years ago, but it was pretty well still able to be traveled through even with the thick brush.
Today, I could barely access even the closest stones. I helpful soul had been in and collected a bunch of broken pieces and attempted to assemble them, but I fear, did not have luck and appears to have given up. (who could blame them, really?)
As you will see from just the couple photos I was able to take, it's a total loss to underbrush and downed trees. Two years ago, I was worried about the history to be lost. This day made this an even higher priority than any other I have ever seen.
This will be my only focus this fall/winter. I welcome monetary and volunteer donations. Please feel free to contact me for more information.
I predict in less than one year from now, a total loss.
One word... Desperate.
