Q.: Stone portals at Columbia Cemetery part of original plan?
About: History Columbia City cemetery entrance completion 1919To ColumbiaMagazine.com:
What a great find from Jim regarding the historic Columbia Cemetery entrance!
It's too bad the "devise" from Ms. Kizzie Russell's will was so little appreciated in years to come. The entry was torn away when the road was widened, and replaced by a large cement wall.
I wonder if the current stone portals on either side of the Campbellsville Street vehicle entrance to the cemetery were part of the original plan in 1919. They may have complemented the walk-in entry seen in Earl Conover's photo.
By the way, the old cemetery gate has now been installed in the rose garden at the Trabue House. Fittingly, it's just two doors down from the home built by J.O. Russell and his wife, Kizziah.
