Common sense isn't.
Credit goes to the Coal Creek Watershed Foundation's web page describing the Coal Creek Motor Discovery Trail for providing a suggested tour route and information about the area.
More pictures and information can be found at Carl Fritts' web pages about the Leach Cemetery and the Fraterville mine disaster. Also, Bonnie Phillips is collecting pictures, names and dates from Leach cemetery, as well as from many others in the area.
The location is shown in this aerial view from Terraserver (faint circle at right), and in this map from maps.yahoo.com.
It makes a stunning impression to see the same date, May 19, 1902, over and over, on every headstone in the circular pattern surrouding the central monument.
The photo at right looks back towards the church.
This headstone shows an example of the repairs that have been done to improve the condition of the monuments.
The base of the central monument is engraved with the names of
the many miners who died in the tragic accident.
|Quote of the moment|
|On Opulence: The difference between the great house with twenty to fifty guest rooms, all numbered like the rooms in a hotel, and the house of ordinary good size with from four to six guest rooms, or the farmhouse or small cottage which has but one "best" spare chamber, with perhaps a "man's room" on the ground floor, is much the same as the difference between the elaborate wedding and the simplest one merely of degree and not of kind.|
|~ Emily Post, Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics and at Home, Chap. XXV¶1, 1922 ~|
