Oak Ridge Cemetery Springfield, IL – 30 APR 2011

At 365 acres, Oak Ridge Cemetery is the largest cemetery in Illinois. It was first used in 1858 and is still an active cemetery today. Besides holding the remains of the 13th President, they have impressive memorials for the Koren War, WWII and the Illinois Vietnam Veterans. That being said, from a photographers stand point it was one of the most Angel-less cemeteries I’ve ever visited. Here are the images of interest I was able to find:

These last images are of the final resting place for John Riley Tanner – Governor of Illinois from 1897 to 1901:
Does it bring you luck to have your coins land inside the grave?
