Donald Cemetery #1

Donald cemetery is very quiet place. The only exception is when the silence is broken by the frequent passing of the freight trains which rumble past the historic 120-year-old cemetery in Southern British Columbia on a regular basis. There are many children some mere infants who were buried in this cemetery. The town of Donald was established in the late 1880's as a divisional point on the Canadian Pacific Railway, in 1897 the CPR abandoned Donald in favour of Revelstoke, BC. Donald became a host town and disappeared into obscurity, today all that remains are a few overgrown foundations and the cemetery.
