Greenwood Cemetery Decatur, Illinois

Mausoleum-Greenwood-Cemeter

I mentioned that I was going to visit Greenwood Cemetery in Decatur last week.  It is a pretty interesting and impressive place.  From the entrance you are confronted with many fine Mausoleums for some of the well-known Decatur families like the Milliken’s and the Mueller’s.

The photo above is of the “Barrackman Steps“. Legend has it that the spectral image of a woman in a long white grown can be seen here at sunset. Since I was there late in the morning I didn’t get to see if this was so. I do think that it wouldn’t be hard to let your imagination run away in Greenwood Cemetery.  If you would like to read more about the history and legends of Greenwood Cemetery here is a link.
