    I have been looking for a antique wrought iron fence for my front yard. 19 century wrought iron fences are very very expensive. I couldn't believe my luck when I saw a cl ad for 9 panels of fence for $275. I rented a truck and got a friend to help pick it up. It was love at first sight,all along the top where gothic arches!! I asked where the fence came from, and was told a old cemetery that was being moved. My friend couldn't believe i still bought it after learning where it came from. Would that stop you from buying a piece you love?

    Did they use it to prop up the bodies?


    Then, no, I wouldn't let the fact it came from a cemetary deter me.

    Nope. Sounds like a good deal for all involved. It's not like the residents will come back for it.

    That makes the fence even better! It has history!!! I don't believe in ghosts/spirits/gods but do like to talk about them in jest, so if I wanted a fence like that and could get one, that would be TOTALLY AWESOME for stories!!!

    Nope, I love the metal fences and they are beautiful! And another bonus, you are recycling them to beautify your yard!

    Metal does not absorb bad spirits well, you are safe. [​IMG]

    And, seriously I would get it. If not bought and used for it's purpose will be recycled and come out of the recycling bin as molten metal to be made into something else. I love the history of it!

    What's the big deal about that? Wrought iron is wrought iron, no matter where it's been. In fact, that adds a bit of history to the piece.

    That makes it an even better recycling/re-using story! Wouldn't bother me at all.
