Last week my friend Deborah showed me around Mount Moriah cemetery in west philly. There are two important things to know about Mt. Moriah: it is huge and abandoned. We got there just before sunset and had a walk around before it got dark.
Some places appear to be kind of well-tended, but some others are literally forests by this point. It was a strange scene to walk into a thicket of trees, vines, and thorns and run straight into an overgrown family plot.
There are also some pretty impressive mausoleums that are equally dilapidated.
There is also a well-tended veteran’s cemetery, which was strange because there are totally overgrown private plots right next to them.
