Milwaukee County Asylum Cemetery
The county developed the large open area around what is known as the “county grounds” and removed the community gardens to build a large stormwater overflow basin. For the most part they have tried to restore habitat after reshaping the land. There is a trail a little over two miles long encircling the basin and you can see deer, fox, owls, etc. Yesterday evening the frogs were super loud.
This stand of trees was also left intact, the last bit of the county asylum burial grounds.
My son and I climbed the hill to see how the place was doing. I had shared a post on this place a few years ago.
There used to be signs on some of the trees but few remain.
Love remains intact.
This makeshift memorial wasn’t here the last time I was here.
