I have heard and seen the little patch at mi. 157.4 referred to as either the parkside graveyard or canal laborers’ graveyard. I’m sure there is plenty of history in this area, but the few very weathered gravestones don’t give away a lot of secrets. However, I can’t think of too many more scenic places to be laid to rest. This is one of those areas where the canal veers away from the river, and there are large sections of cleared acreage that have been mowed and turned into those huge, round bales of hay. In all, as the greens and browns began to mingle in the looming frosty air, it made for a peaceful scene that will soon give way to the barren landscape of winter.
