Or is it PEAGE?


  1. katzien in austin says:

    This goes with the other one. Remember “Faith?”

  2. Jeff says:

    I’ll take Peace. We all should.

  3. Karen Too says:

    Love the “Faith” one. I’m in agreement, though, we should all take “Peace,” too.

    How about faith in peace?

    • Karen Too says:

      Forgot to include how it could look like “PEAGE.” The tips of the “C” should have been properly aligned, so it does look like a “G.”

      It’s still a beautiful shot.

  4. Kirsten says:

    Hmmm…I’m thinking there is a big cow in New Salem:

    • Donna in MI says:

      Kirsten, thanks for the link. SALEM SUE is the World’s Largest Holstein Cow. She sits on top of a big hill and can be seen from miles around. I’m sure Matt saw her. She gives all of us our dairy products! What an amazing animal!

    • Karen Too says:

      Yes, that is one big cow. Enjoyed the link, and put it in my bookmarks. Thanks, Kirsten.

    • Don in Tennessee says:


      This is a neat website I was not familar with. I will look at different attractions in all 50 states!



    • Kirsten, How did you know this even before Matt posted the picture of Sue? Thanks for the link. But what is ND fascination with larger than life statue animals?

  5. Michael in Atlanta says:

    I’m taking PEACE anytime it is offered. Thanks for that, Matt.

  6. Jeff says:

    Go thing those were not the pearly gates ….but just he Peace gates.

  7. Donna in MI says:

    Think this was Graceland Cemetery, 4825 Co. Rd. 139, New Salem, ND. I’m guessing it was established sometime back in the 1880’s or around that time. The iron work was done by a blacksmith, and it was just probably poor judgment on his part regarding the shape of the the letter “C”, or maybe that’s the way they made it then. Any locals out there know anything more about this?

  8. Karen Too says:

    Maybe, then, it’s a toll road to the afterlife; if so, it’s missing an accent mark:éage

  9. Jeff says:

    French black smith with sense of humor…….Nobody is buried for free……..

  10. Jim in AR via MN says:

    The ironwork done by master craftsmen (for all of you PCer’s, probably some women too) across North Dakota…is a study in itself (and I believe one of the universities is doing just that) …cemeteries have these gates and fences…and even graves have their gates…so doing what Matt is doing…more that just a “quick look”…these people who did this work were masters…and had little in the way of modern equipment to do it…I stand amazed at those immigrant pioneers…
