Beautiful is not the term most people would think about when you mention a cemetery, but they are beautiful. In this exhibit we wanted to showcase the haunting beauty and history of cemeteries in Bowling Green. The tombstones, monuments, chapels, and the people that are buried in those cemeteries deserve to be remembered. The cemeteries are an important part of our community and that is something we hope you can see from this exhibit.
