Does this look cold? Well, IT WAS!!! This pictures was taken one Sunday afternoon. I had decided I just had to see Klopps Cemetery in Northern Lebanon County. I had spent 1/2 hour photographing some of the most awesome 18th century carved headstones in that cemetery. My fingers were so cold they were red, but I couldn’t get in the car until I took “just one more picture!”
As my fingers were thawing out and we were heading back to Lancaster County, I spied this and my husband had to apply the brakes and turn around, so I could get out and see it! This monument stands in the front of the Kimmerling’s Church Cemetery, right off of the highway, just a bit south of Klopps. I was not disappointed! This monument is massive and beautiful!
It was erected by, I’m assuming, Jacob Kimmerling’s ancestors and stood the test of time. It is as beautiful today as it probably was the day it was put into place and the reason it is
