Richland’s beautiful cemetery is the final resting place for many Georgia pioneers, people who settled the state’s interior when it was still a wilderness. It is truly a landmark in and of itself.

  1. Another of my favorite things to explore, old cemeteries. I wonder if the Wares are related to Nicholas Ware for whom Ware County is named. He was mayor of Augusta in the early 1800s.

    This is another beautiful building…it is testimony to my belief that our forbearers were so much more aware of what is good architectural design than we are today
