Call me morbid, but I have always been fascinated by cemeteries. Maybe it’s the writer in me who is intrigued by the stories that lies behind each of the names carved into the polished stone, or the history nerd in me who is drawn to the dates marking the lives of those who walked the Earth at a different time...I’ve visited cemeteries from Europe to Bermuda and throughout the U.S. (I said it was okay to call me morbid). However, their history and their stories still don’t stack up to those found in one of my favorite graveyards – the Doylestown Historic Cemetery.

It’s finally that time of year again. The shad are making their way up the Delaware River to their spawning grounds, the nights are getting longer, and the days are warming up. This can only mean one thing: it’s time to go to New Hope. Again and again and again.
