Not the kind of place you want to find on a family walk in the woods: the Crosby crematorium in Nickerson State Park, Brewster MA
http://budleighbrewsterunited.blogspot.com/2010/09/labours-of-sisyphus.html to see what I mean.
The grave of John Crosby 1775-1843
"Deep in the woods of Brewster lies an ancient cemetery, holding a few Crosby gravestones from the mid-1800s. We have visited the site many times over the years, never having explored the area just downhill from the gravestones.
What lies there is slightly strange, an old family crematorium. I showed these photos to a friend who happens to be a mortician in the Midwest. I asked if it was indeed what I thought.
His response, "It sure looks like one. The different doors are for moving things around and scraping out the ashes afterwards. that's hella cool and ambient."
I lol'd at the response, since apparently morticians find coolness in places most would consider creepy.
In any event, it's a bit of deep woods history from Old Cape Cod."
The Crosby gravestones that he mentions are those of a well-known Brewster family. For some interesting background on them and their Crosby Mansion, described as "one of the Cape's hidden jewels", click on http://www.capecodtravel.com/towns/brewster/crosby1198.shtml
