    While down in Memphis for a few days off, my buddies and I went on a few cemetery crawls. We came across this abanonded crypt type building. The door was open, so...I had to go in. I noticed at one time, it housed something. Im not sure if this was a temporary storage place, as I did find places where there were once plaques on the wall. But there are no coffins, and the place is pretty run down, and had signs of vandlism. I found some maps on the floor of the burial grounds, but did not grab a shot of them, so Im kickin myself now.

    Taken from the road as we walked up the small hill to the crypt

    We found this door had been smashed in.

    A view of the inside. I wanted to move a little closer but there was a large sheet of wood in the middle of the floor covering a hole, and it did not look too safe.

    This was the main entrance. Above the door was a window, with a piece of wood nailed to it, and a wire hanging down, which was kinda wierd. Not sure how it got up there.

    Chiller, these shots are just beautiful. I don't get creepy at all.

    I can't believe you don't recognize the place ... it's April Raven's summer home!! :mrgreen: The shot with the 10 coffin holes ... she's airing them out so they don't get all musty and dank too early.

    Btw ... down in Memphis and you didn't give me a holler? Well ... guess I know where I rate with you. Heck, you were just three hours from me. I'd have bought you dinner.

    i'd love to know why it's been abandoned. is the rest of the cemetary run-down as well? do you remember the name of the cemetary?

    Thanks Jon. I visited 4 cemeteries. This one was at Forest Hill Midtown, on Elvis Presley Blvd. The cemetery is getting run down a bit. I was surprised at the area, since the Kings house is just up the road. I heard at one time Elvis was buried at this cemetery and somebody tried to steal him.

    I also visited Elmwood that had a bird infestation at the time. Now that was killer. But I still could not catch the freekin crow.
    Zion cemetery was in really bad shape. I got the feelin it was for the really poor people of Memphis. The graves were really unkept, and there were fallen trees that had smashed many of them. In one part of the cemetery, somebody had dumped a load of tires over the graves. :thumbdown:

    Memorial park was a newer cemetery. They did not have much for upright stones, but had a really cool part called the Crystal cave. I will post some of those shots later.

    Pay attention, JonMikal ... it's not REALLY a cemetary ... of the public type. Just ask Ravie Babie ... she has even been known to rent rooms out on occasion.

    Chiller, honestly ... THREE hours! We could have had a TPF Southern Comfort gig going ... though I don't have a camera ... but Ravie does. Anyway, YOU BETTER CALL NEXT TIME!

    Aprilraven, dearest pallie, I don't even clean my OWN house, but I'll be glad to send the boys over to help.

    and yes, we need a southern comfort tpf....chase is in dallas..and we have tons of tpf'ers in texas....if chiller can fly down, then so can others....

    These photos really "LIVE" with the conversation that is going on between aprilraven and anicole now! :mrgreen: Their "describing" the place really adds to otherwise ALSO very good photos, but ... you must keep that conversation, Chiller!!! :mrgreen:
