To The Receiving Tomb

The building at the end of this dirt road is a Receiving Tomb. Something not seen much, most have been removed from old cemeteries.

Prior to burial in the 1800’s the deceased were held inside buildings like this. There are known cases where it was years before a grave site was ready. Large monuments and detailed headstones came from long distances.
