Ed Zimmer hosted a tour of Wyuka cemetery May 18 on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.  Thank you Ed for another wonderful historical walk through the cemetery.

 

Ed Zimmer started the tour in Rudge Chapel. The chapel’s interior features a lovely oak pulpit carved with acorns and oak leaves. Funerals and occasional weddings are held in the building as well as the main Chapel in the Main Building next to Rudge.

Beautiful weather for a walk.

 

 

 

 

The oldest building in the cemetery, constructed in 1886. The Vault was built to hold caskets when the ground was too frozen in the winter to open graves.

Wyuka has a few early gravestones with portrait photographs. The technique glazed the image onto a porcelain plaque, creating a photograph that was both crisp and remarkably stable.
