Little Vine Cemetery // Bremen, Georgia


Every time I visit Georgia, Courtney and I make the rounds and visit some of our favorite cemeteries, local haunts and abandoned places. This morning we had some time to spare and nothing to do, so we decided to explore and check out somewhere new for a change. We drove about half an hour from my dad's house and found Little Vine Cemetery, a small collection of graves off the side of a dirt road in Bremen. It was only a few degrees above freezing and pouring rain so we didn't stay long, but I snapped a few photos during the short time we were there.


This cemetery was unique because it seemed like there were more children buried there than adults. Walking through, it seemed like at least every other headstone had a child's name on it. Most of the graves dated back to the 1910s and 1920s, so this definitely isn't the most historic cemetery in the area, but it was still a neat place to visit nestled out in the woods. I prefer visiting quiet, isolated little cemeteries like this because there's minimal chance we'll run into other visitors -- or mourners. While I love cemeteries because I think they're beautiful and interesting, the last thing I want to do is disturb someone there to mourn while I'm moving around taking photos. I don't know... it just seems skeevy and disrespectful to me, and I never want my interests and hobbies to hurt or offend others if I can help it.

  1. I can really relate to what you say about preferring quiet cemeteries - I really dislike walking around and taking pictures with mourners around, makes me feel like an intruder.

    And your photos are stunning, especially with the trees as backdrop. Great post!

    1. At home in Colorado, most of our cemeteries are gigantic and filled with people at all times... so I have a hard time visiting. You're totally right, it makes me feel like an intruder as well.
