Saint Roch's Cemetery

Unlike the other cemeteries I visited, this cemetery has a chapel. After doing some research, I noticed that the ceiling of the chapel was once white and not blue how it is today. The cemetery was founded in 1868, in honor of St. Roch of France. The chapel was finished in 1876 and the second part of the cemetery in the back was added in 1895. The small room in the chapel is designated for mementos, shoes, braces, prosthetic, and other little trinkets.
