This cemetery includes white headstones tidily arranged in the old style "choirs"--by gender--on a pretty green hillside. It's a walk to get there, but worth the time.

Not a fan of cemeteries, but Gods Acre is beautiful. Because the Moravians decided to use flat marble stones to memorialize the dead, there is a uniformity and symmetry that commands peace. We walked along and read the scripture verses written on the marble slabs. It is interesting to see the older memorial from the 1700s. Lots of history in Gods Acre.

God's Acre is so quiet and serence. Lovely to strolll through and see all the sweet remembrances of the past. Makes you feel closer to Sister O and all the founders of Salem.

We happen to see God's Acre when in Old Salem. To read the history and details as to the layout was very interesting. It is a very beautiful place.

This is a place where you will stop for a moment and realize the power of the universe. This graveyard dates back to a simpler time when respect and honor were important and the world was not so crazy. Take time to stop and reflect on where you are in your life and you will leave a better person. This is such a well maintained place you will enjoy your time here.
