The Above Ground Cemetery In South Carolina That’s Equal Parts Creepy And Fascinating
By this point, most native South Carolinians are familiar with the period practice of burying the dead in an above ground grave that’s nothing at all like a sealed crypt or mausoleum. It’s simply a brick and mortar (or just mortar) encasement with a cover bearing a few kind words about the dearly departed, including their name and birth/death dates.
Have you visited a cemetery with broken above-ground graves in South Carolina? Did it make you uneasy, sad, or both?
