Country Gates

Calhoun Cemetery, rural Harrison County, Iowa

Marking the portal to many country cemeteries are simple gates made of metal letters stretched between two metal poles.  In this case the date of the first burial is commemorated above the cemetery name along with cut-out crosses and upright crosses.
