Side yard/graveyard

041515

The church yard at Las Trampas had a small graveyard in it.

The village of Las Trampas was founded in 1751 and the church was built between 1760 and 1776. The historic marker said, “Parishioners periodically re-mud the adobe walls, which are as much as six feet thick.” I guess eventually those ever-thickening walls will start to encroach on the graves.
