Patano Cemetery, located on Hwy. 548 in Claiborne County, is located on top of a small hill that you will miss if you aren't looking for it. One plot of the cemetery looks like it is being maintained, but the rest is going back to nature. A small sign along the road said the cemetery was established in the 1840s. There are some beautiful tombstones in this cemetery, but there were many others that I could not get to because of the overgrowth. And this is the wrong time of year to be crawling through that kind of stuff. The only reason I have these photos is because I wore my snake boots — the most important piece of equipment I own. I wouldn't dare traipse through vegetation like this if not for them.
As always, if you know more about this cemetery, please leave a comment.
And do me a favor, will you? Forward this blog to others who you think might be interested in these ol' photos I put up every weekday. I would appreciate it.
