A Low Wall at Waveland, Fayette Co.

At Waveland State Historic Site, a low wall was built in order to protect these two tombstones.  We later learned that there are no actual graves here, but it is still a nice addition to an already beautiful park.


Stone for this wall was recycled from old construction debris that was discarded on the park decades ago.


Even though this wall is only about 3 feet tall at its tallest, it took a massive amount of stone to build.  For every 4 linear feet, there is about 3/4 of a ton of limestone.

This little niche has now become a favored spot for the numerous photographers who frequent Waveland.
Even without real graves, this spot has an ageless serenity about it now.
