The abandoned and unmaintained Buckner Cemetery stands in the middle of a parking lot at a flea market. The cemetery has been fenced, signed and has 2 historical markers, but it is clearly abandoned. Blasterz suspect the fencing was added to keep cars fro driving through the cemetery as you have to snake your way awkwardly in your car around the cemetery.

Buckner Cemetery is not mowed, and the majority of the beautiful late 19th century tombstones have been pushed over by vandals or maybe the impact of cars.

Others are propped against trees away from the graves they used to mark. The cemetery is not mowed, and the day Blasterz visited (3 Dec 2017) we walked through at least 2-3 years worth of acorns on the ground.
