Provenance on the iron gate at Julia Horton Rose Garden

It is from the old entryway to Columbia City Cemetery; its new use is very fitting - great that it was preserved

By Ann Curtis

The Julia Miller Horton Rose Garden is really lovely!

Just a note about the black iron gate in the right hand corner of this photo: this is the gate that was a part of the Columbia Cemetery's entrance in the early 20th century. The entryway was donated to the cemetery in memory of Ms. Kizzie Russell in 1919.

I'm not sure how the cemetery gate ended up in the rose garden, but perhaps it had been stored in the nearby home of J.O. and Kizzie Russell, which was located just two doors up the hill from the Trabue House.

The cemetery entrance was torn down in the 1950s or '60s to widen Campbellsville Street.

However it came about, I'm glad this piece of Columbia's history has been preserved!

--Ann Curtis

The snake: Likely a Black Racer; maybe a rat snake

They're similar. Snake in the grass at Greater Gadberry likely Black Racer; writer gives simple way to distinguished between it and the very similar Rat Snake. They've got very different natures

Billy Joe Fudge writes:
Rat Snake or Black Racer, however I'm leaning toward Black Racer because of the white throat, gray belly scales and the way he/she is holding up the head while crawling. Rat Snakes can be very similar depending upon age, sex, location, etc.

Usually easy to tell the difference in person but from a photo it becomes somewhat more difficult.

Remember concerning these two snakes, if it crawls away rather slowly after being disturbed it most likely is a Rat Snake and if it slithers away from you or toward you for a short distance like a rope that has been slung across a frozen pond then it is a Black Racer. --
