WPC: Unusual – Grave in the Middle of the Road

This week’s photo challenge theme for the Daily Post is ‘Unusual.’ The grave of Nancy Kerlin Barnett was the first thought that popped into my mind. The two lanes of a narrow country road near Franklin, Indiana, straddle her grave-site. You can read the full story here but for the condensed version: the county wanted to build a new county road through an existing cemetery. The county contacted all the families involved and all but Nancy Kerlin Barnett’s family agreed to have the graves moved to a nearby location. The county decided to accept that outcome and moved all but that one grave then built the road around it. And there her remains rest to this day!
