Victorian Monuments at Morgan Methodist Church Cemetery, Georgia

Calhoun County

Located in the Morgan Methodist Church Cemetery, these two monuments exemplify typical Victorian statuary. It’s typical to see a monument with downcast eyes. The wreath represents eternal life and immortality. It can also represent victory over death.

Seashells can represent spiritual protection. It’s a common motif seen on the graves of children.
