Although the cemetery contains the graves of those recently departed it contains a number of graves from the late 1800's and early 1900's. Family plots surrounded by iron fencing was more common then.

I knew that there was a cemetery at the northern tip of ABIA, but thought that the gates to it were closed except for family members.  I decided to take a closer look after hiking at McKinney Falls State Park.  There are some interesting headstones here and it's surprising quiet and tranquil most of the time when planes are not taking off overhead.
