High Noon: Cemetery Tour Sunday

In this 2007 SR file photo by Kathy Plonka, Vietnam veteran Dusty Rhoads of the Coeur d’Alene chapter of the Vietnam Veterans of America power washes the headstones of veterans from the Civil War, Spanish-American War and WWI at Forest Cemetery in Coeur d’Alene. Beginning at 10 a.m. Sunday, the city library and parks department will lead a guided tour of the history cemetery. The cemetery at 1011 Government Way was originally owned by the U.S. Army from 1878 to 1901, for use by Fort Sherman troops. More here.

Question: Do you consider cemeteries as a place of peace and reflection — or scary?
