NYT: Art and History Among the Dead

The New York Times published a great piece on cemeteries this week: Art and History Among the Dead. Starting off with a brief history of the 150 year-old, 400 acre Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx, it goes on to describe how historic cemeteries across the country are trying to capitalize on the public's interest in their history, art and architecture. I hope this interest continues and helps to protect these important cultural landscapes.
