Olive Hill Cemetery, downtown Mt. Sterling
Olive Hill Cemetery in downtown Mt. Sterling is a stark contrast to Machpelah, just a few blocks away. While Machpelah is immaculately groomed, Olive Hill is almost forgotten and much of it is overgrown. Even the sign that once arched over the road has fallen down.
There are a couple of interesting plaques on the pillars on either side of the entrance. Wonder what the 'Dirty Dozen' club is?
Many of the stones almost disappear into the grass and weeds.
Old flower baskets sit under a tree in the corner.
