Cemetery Stroll Through Langsford Street Cemetery Lanesville

I follow a thread on Facebook that recently commented “No one takes pictures of cemeteries anymore”, and I thought “Please subscribe to the blog and follow my posts!” This is the Langsford Street Cemetery in Lanesville. It is a small, city owned, active cemetery roadside in Lanesville along 127. Most cemeteries are especially pretty in the fall, but this one has a special added bonus of looking out onto the water as well. It is very well kept and neatly arranged. There is an impressive monument to Civil War soldiers in the middle and a clear path down the center of the small area. The Guide to Cemeteries in Essex County, Massachusetts from the Essex Society of Genealogists notes the dates for this cemetery to be 1849-1959 though the City of Gloucester website lists it as active. It’s an easy stroll to view the various headstones in a quiet peaceful setting.
