A Most Picturesque Graveyard – Binkley’s Pioneer Cemetery

Despite development that has occurred around the Binkley graveyard, it still matches two descriptions found in the campus archives:

“The cemetery is on a hill over-looking the marsh a wedge-shaped piece nicely kept and very very peaceful.”

“The cemetery is reached by a winding road around the brow of the hill, most picturesque’

Before I knew there was a cemetery located here, I used to glance up from the parking lot that is located below and wonder whether those objects were tombstones.

Now years later, I have discovered one of the beautiful little spots in Hamilton. Judging by the quotes above, this is a timeless appreciation of this unique piece of landscape.
