Living among the dead.... Jonathan Reed loved his wife, Mary. Nothing unusual there. But according to Evergreens, when she died in 1893, Jonathan Reed moved into her sarcophagus to live with the remains, as well as his (still living) pet parrot. Reed had his Mary’s casket transferred to the vault, where he installed an empty casket in which he would eventually lie. He then settled into what became his second home. Domestic furniture stood in the vestibule, a wood stove provided heat, and scattered about the vault were a clock, some urns filled with flowers, photographs, paintings on the wall, a deck of playing cards, Mary’s half-finished knitting, and the family’s pet parrot (first alive, later stuffed). As word of Reed’s story spread, company began stopping by. Around 7,000 people stopped by in the first year alone. Witnesses said he ate all of his meals there and held imaginary conversations with his wife. According to the New York Times article, published in March of 1905, “Mr. Reed could never be made to believe that his wife was really dead, his explanation of her condition being that the warmth had simply left her body and that if he kept the mausoleum warm she would continue to sleep peacefully in the costly metallic casket in which her remains were put.” The article also states, “According to his friends, he really believed that his wife could understand what he was saying to her.” When he passed in 1905 his remains were finally interred here with his wife’s, as well as the parrot.

There is no such thing as death. In nature nothing dies, From each sad remnant of decay Some forms of life arise. The little leaf that falls All brown and sere to Earth, Ere long will mingle with the buds That give the flower its birth. -Anonymous 1891 . . . . .. . . .... . . #greenwoodcemetery #historicgreenwood #graveyard_dead #mausoleum #victorian #victorianarchitecture #architecture_lovers #romantic_darkness #dark_captures #henrypierrepont #aj_graveyards #graveyardbeauty #graveyard_life_members_only #project_necropolis #gyl_hunt #grave_affair #the_great_gothic_world #sombrescapes #starlings_sanctuary #vd_gothika #sombresociety #the_mirror_of_our_souls #vd_darkhouses #victoriangothic #gothicbeauty #etoe_2 #nature

Coming here after a long day at work is just what my mind and soul craves. Time spent among the trees and damp earth is what keeps me going. I live for getting lost among the graves and lush green trees, This is when I feel most alive. . . . . . . . . . #greenwoodcemetery #historicgreenwood #graveyard_dead #architecture #natureismychurch #chapel #romantic_darkness #aj_graveyards #graveyardbeauty #nature #graveyard_life_members_only #project_necropolis #gyl_hunt #grave_affair #the_great_gothic_world #sombrescapes #starlings_sanctuary #vd_gothika #sombresociety #the_mirror_of_our_souls #vd_darkhouses #victoriangothic #gothicbeauty #etoe_2 #nature

In 1886, while in a small boat near the shore of a pond, Louis Mieusset (1881-1886) noticed his pet rabbit running along the bank. Wishing to bring the rabbit with him, he tried to reach for his pet, but lost his balance and fell out of the boat and drowned. It is this last moment of life that Louise Hellium Mieusset chose to commemorate in her son's last resting place in Forest Hills Cemetery. . . . . .. . . #foresthillscemetery #louismieusset #graveyard_life_members #graveyard_dead #cemetery #architecture #romantic_darkness #victoriangraves #victorianarchitecture #dark_captures #aj_graveyards #graveyardbeauty #architecture_greatshots #graveyard_life_members_only #project_necropolis #igdaily #gyl_hunt #grave_affair #romantic_darkness #romantic_graves #newengland #victorian #grave #thedarkartistries #darkartistries

I love rainy days. Especially when it's the last day of school/work for Spring break. Just realized I never posted this photo from our trip last Fall to Forest Hills Cemetery. . . Grace Sherwood Allen (1876-1880) was the daughter of William H. Allen and Emily J. Allen and she died prior to her 5th birthday from whooping cough. . . . . . . #foresthillscemetery #graveyard_life_members #graveyard_dead #cemetery #architecture #romantic_darkness #victoriangraves #victorianarchitecture #dark_captures #aj_graveyards #graveyardbeauty #rainyday #architecture_greatshots #springbreak #graveyard_life_members_only #project_necropolis #igdaily #gyl_hunt #grave_affair #romantic_darkness #romantic_graves #newengland #victorian #grave
