Evergreen Cemetery, Bloomington, Illinois

Copyright St. Louis Patina -7652

I suppose not every city can have a cemetery as amazing as St. Louis’s Bellefontaine Cemetery, but the Evergreen Cemetery is Bloomington’s entry into the competition. Simple, austere, with only a few notable monuments, it nonetheless presents an island of peace on the southeast side of town.

Perhaps of most interest was the veterans’ portion of the cemetery, where the stone, losing its definition, was painted in a high contrast white and black.
