Off the beaten track but my son wanted to go there. Interesting but basic - it is a cemetery after all. Bit of history. Worth the drive if you are a dog lover and into offbeat places to visit

As a dog lover, I thought this was a wonderful thing for owners of coon hounds to have. Again, as a dog lover I enjoyed this, but it is WAY away from anything, and to drive up it is very underwhelming. My son would not...More
