This the prettiest cemetery in Huntsville, AL. Both my parents are buried there under a pretty flowering tree. This cemetery has alot of history also. Solders from the civil war buried here.

This is hollowed ground and the cemetery staff does an excellent job keeping it maintained, beauty and peacefulness.
