A Quiet Evening Walk

This is the cemetery statue for Augusta Bitner who lived from 1884-1906. It is located in a cemetery right next to a city and I found the contrast between the still park and the lit buildings just outside the fence interesting and worth shooting. Rumors have it that she has been seen roaming the cemetery on the anniversary of her death.I found conflicting stories on her demise that range from typhus to falling down steps and dying after having an argument with her parents about her imminent wedding.All I know is she remained still the entire time I was there,which included a visit from two police cruisers checking out what I was up too. I showed them the photo on my tablet and after they asked me if she moved at all,off they went.

  1. I was always told she died leaving the church on her wedding day and tripped going down the steps. I lived on New Holland Ave right across the street from this. Cemetery. Great photo.

  2. Beautiful place!! Looks like a great place to go check out old dates on headstones or take a leisurely walk along the walk. A person could learn a lot of history here if the ghost were in the mood to have a sit down chat with you.
