Arcade, New York

Saints Peter and Paul Roman Catholic Cemetery:  Peter and Paul Cemetery is located in the Diocese of Buffalo. The Hudson Valley is located on the other side of the state. But, it seems to have been the Hudson Valley school of nineteenth century Romantic painters who set the tone for the scenes seen in Arcade's burial ground. The Romantics excluded humanity and focused on idealizing the natural environment. With that in mind, take away the house and fence, and you will find an awfully romantic setting for one family's memories. [2013]
