Located just off US 62 in Charlestown, Indiana, the abandoned Barnett Cemetery is on the grounds of the old Indiana Army Ammunition Plant. The stones are all quite old and detailed, but the most notable feature of the cemetery is its stone wall. Join us today as we examine it in more detail.

|Gravestone, broken and repair. The government has taken pretty good care of the place, despite the lack of any other apparent outside concerns. The grass is still mowed.|
|The grave of Captain John Blizzard.|
|A lot of these stones show the exact age of the person, in days, months and years.|
