Allen-Wells Cemetery-Spartanburg, South Carolina

Spartanburg County
Jane Wells, 1788-1864

Located in the center of a cul-de-sac, the Allen-Wells Cemetery has ties to the early families of Spartanburg. I believe the cemetery has been restored since I took these photos.

Mount Olive Cemetery-Atlanta, Georgia

Fulton County

Located on the edge of a park and in the shadows of Buckhead, Mount Olive Cemetery is one of the last tangible pieces of the Black community known as Macedonia Park. Founded after the Civil War of freed men and women, the neighborhood thrived for several decades. It is in desperate need of attention.

Foster-Thomason-Miller House-Madison, Georgia

Morgan County

When I moved back to Georgia in 2013, I was already an avid photographer. My first weekend trip upon my return was to Madison. After living up north for over a decade, I had asked friends to suggest a place for me to get out of Atlanta. They recommended Madison. For those of you know Madison, you know why they recommended it.

This house, the Foster-Thomason-Miller house, was the first house that made me pull my car over immediately. Just doing a google search will show you I am not the first person to be enamored with this house.

After decades of being abandoned, it is finally being restored.
