Christine Ermenc and I have used this time of social distancing during #CoronaVirusWatch while the museums are all closed to ramp up our visits to burying grounds and cemeteries. We pack a lunch, almost never see anyone and off we go with the mirror we use to direct the sun to get great pictures - the natural angle without it being good for only about an hour. It only works on sunny days (like today) and that's when we go.
One of my favorite #PioneerValley towns is Northfield, Massachusetts which was THE northern most town in the CT Valley settled during the 17th century. The Main St there is filled end to end with outstanding early houses.
A lot of the early #folkart gravestones in the burying ground there are by a stonecutter named Janes - If I recall correctly. The stuff is highly original and interesting. Also interesting how few surnames there are on these early gravestones. There could have been as few as a dozen families that settled the place early on. They stayed & married their children off to one another. A bit the way it was in these less commercial towns. Visit Northfield. Poke around. You won't be disappointed.
