12/9/2013. Religious statue grave marker with icicles hanging from it, and green moss covering her face which faces north. I took several of her. Day after 5″ of snow followed by 1/2″ of ice (freezing rain) on top. This is the historic cemetery in Hillsboro, Virginia in western Loudoun in the Blue Ridge Mountains of northern Virginia. The town of Hillsboro was formally founded in 1802, though homes, farms and mills had been there much longer. This cemetery has likely been here almost as long.
