Wilson Farm

 

Having had a bonus day off on Wednesday, Thatcher and I took a trek to Lexington to meet my dad at Wilson Farm to pick up some yummy extras for our Thanksgiving meal.  I’ve been meaning to check out Wilson Farm for quite a while now and will certainly have to head back on a day when the crowd isn’t so large.  Thanksgiving Eve found the farm super crowded with Thanksgivingers grabbing last minutes fixings, fully prepared dinners, and everything in between!

We grabbed some stuffed mushrooms, cranberry sauce, gravy, nuts, and gorgeous flowers.  It was well worth the ride just to poke around and I look forward to going back as Christmas carols play and holiday cheer is in the air.

Beechbrook Cemetery

My passion is family history.  Hand in hand with that obsession, goes a compelling interest in cemeteries.  I know not everyone understands this but Gloucester is blessed with some very interesting cemetery stories.  Beechbrook Cemetery is such a story.

Beechbrook Cemetery is located on Essex Ave in West Gloucester.  It was established in 1878 and is owned by the City.  The minute I entered it the first time, I was awed by the peace.  I was especially intrigued by the Fisherman’s Rest Last Port of Call memorial.  I find it comforting in its arrangement as a ship at dock surrounded by gentle waves, as represented by the uniform headstones.  John Hays Hammond Sr. established this section for indigent fishermen and sailors according to The Modern Cemetery Vol 21 as found on Google Books.

Joseph Garland in his book The Gloucester Guide stated it much better than I am able: “Row upon row of simple headstones answer to the roll of Gloucester’s men of the sea who lived to died ashore.  Anchors from the fishing vessels are buried with them, their white shanks the sentinel corner posts where the graveled walks meet.”

Beechbrook Cemetery also has a section devoted to veterans, recently upgraded by Zachary Schultz as an Eagle Scout project.

The cemetery also contains special monuments and areas devoted to the Elks, veterans of the Spanish American War and the Moose.

It’s a beautiful peaceful place, well taken care of (thank you Gloucester!) and perhaps you’ll make a visit just to enjoy the peace.
