Woodland Park Cemetery in Stamford, Connecticut has graves dating back to the early 1800s. While visiting this town for Wendy Lipton-Dibner’s Move People to Action seminar, I took a long walk to find this green restful oasis.
While New York is known as the city that never sleeps, this charming little cemetery is a city where the residents never wake. At the entrance to the mausoleum of John W. Leed and family from the 1800s, the gate was decorated with an hourglass surrounded by wings. The message: Time Flies.
I also found this ironic juxtaposition of street sign and headstones as I approached the cemetery.
The visit to Woodland Park Cemetery also provided the opportunity to film a YouTube video about what a real family plot looks like. Since this is The Family Plot Blog, take a look!
