Old overgrown cemetary

The story behind this cemetary is so sad. It is behind a huge mansion and farm that has been turned into a museum. As the family that owned died off only one lady was left living in this huge mansion all alone. She had no friends and was so lonely and depressed. She wrote letters to her dead family members and left them on the grave stones. The letters are so sad. After she died and the mansion was turned into a museum they found some of these letters. They were able to preserve them by sealing them into plastic boxes. They have put the letters back on the grave stones. Reading them just broke my heart. The lady was so lonely and sad. All she wanted was a friend. When she died she left the mansion to the state to be turned into a museum. She said it was for people to enjoy what she was never able to.
