Eastern Cemetery; Louisville KY

Supposedly one of the most haunted cemeteries in the US. Used graves were resold as new, and bodies stacked on top of one another. I regret not taking more photos - I rushed through as it was closing and I wanted to get to my campsite before dark.

Questions I would love answered:

Why does a cemetery need a prison like wall with razor wire?

Why was the crematorium completely sealed with concrete blocks, leaving no way in? Or.... OUT?! What is in there?!?!

Wikipedia says on the mismanagement:

"In 1989, a whistleblower working for Louisville Crematories and Cemetery Company made the public aware that graves purchased by families had been reused. Bodies were buried atop other bodies, graves were carelessly excavated for reuse, and medical cadaver body parts from the University of Louisville were buried in-mass rather than intact (as is legally required for donated bodies). Human bones were found in inappropriate areas, including in a tool box, a glove compartment, a fast food bag, and shallow graves. Some of the behavior had been practiced since the 1920s, and records indicate reuse began in 1858. Officials resigned and were charged with 60 counts of charges that included reuse of graves and abuse of corpses, but there were no legal consequences. The behavior is the subject of the 2017 documentary Facing East, referring to Eastern as "the most over-buried cemetery in America"."

The prior management company and local gov't have both turned their back on responsibility of Eastern Cemetery. It is maintained by local volunteers.

Give abandonment a reason for its sacrificial reclamation to nature. Love it. Remember it. Take a picture. Share it. Leave the decay to nature.

Right?!? I hope you Googled it. My post only has some key points. Their abusive creepy history goes back to the 1800's....
