I had driven by this cemetery many many times, and always wanted to visit. I had also spoken with people who said it wasn't as impressive as it seemed. While I have to agree that I was suprised by the lack of really old markers, I found it was still a very nice exploration. I visted the cemetery one morning when I had afew hours to kill.
On the left is a very pretty angel carving on a fallen stone. On the right is the emblem of a what I assume is the Columbus Fire Department. I've seen emblems like this for military and some faternial groups, but never for a fire fighter.
Simple crosses like these are getting sort of rare. The one on the left is cast concrete (I don't think I've ever seen one like this before. And the one on the right is a simple wooden cross.
This is by far one of the coolest markers I have ever seen. I think the sundial is so awesome.
On the left is a the base of a flag pole. Around it are many veteran's markers. On the right is a sandstone obelisk. I'm not sure if I've ever seen one before.Click here to view the full gallery of pictures I took from Union Cemetery.
