Left to rot, it's not easy to find unless you're a local. Down the Avenue, turn left before the bridge and follow the river until you get to the wooded area.

This headstone is in better condition because it sat forgotten in the General Store attic until it was discovered in the 80s during renovations. The family couldn't pay for the stone at the time, the exact gravesite is unknown. At least that's the story I was told.

Here's another view of #5 in the Silver Islet graveyard, mostly miners and their families.

Cool, thanks everyone, I'm glad you like this spot. It's been a favourite of my family's for generations, my grandma rented a cottage here as a child and we would visit every summer for the day.

There's several original miner's log homes that have been converted to summer cottages along the avenue on the way to the cemetery.

Most of these places are well maintained, although there are two buildings in this area that seem very left alone. I took these pics in the dead of winter. I really regret not going inside now as I definitely had the place all to myself. Next time, if it's still standing.

The larger building in back is either the old jail or the post office depending on who you ask, maybe both.

The cemetery is very very cool, I agree with Doom this pot has great potential for some eerie shots.
