A while ago, I had two quick posts on the Jefferson County Potter’s Field, which is an old cemetery near our house (those posts are here and here).

In that second update, I shared a picture of the stone which marks the cemetery. Here’s how it looked then:


Clearly, something was getting fixed up. It turns out, there wasn’t just a new garden in store for us, but the county cleaned up the stone marker and put in a bench!


It has become a very nice place to sit and enjoy some quiet time. And for those who are interested in the history of the field, there is a new sign up with information on the small cemetery.
