St. Pauls, North Carolina

"Chase the Shades of Night Away": Lighthouses have become entrenched in popular culture and also in cemetery landscapes. The concept of eternal light has deep roots in Christian teachings. Here's a hymn from 1817 that lays the groundwork:  "Holy spirit, light divine, shine upon this heart of mine; chase the shades of night away, turn the darkness into day." Thanks for the inspiration, Andrew Reed! Oak Ridge Cemetery. [2012]
