Mary Carter Grave House, Berrien County

Mary Susan Knight Carter (1867-1887) was the first wife of John Samuel Carter (25 May 1859-9 February 1941). Mr. Carter remarried, but paid tribute to his young bride with this Victorian grave house.

It’s located just past the entrance arch at historic Pleasant Cemetery, which is associated with Pleasant Primitive Baptist Church. It’s a beautiful location, as cemeteries go.

The grave house is typical of the era. It has obviously been restored or rebuilt, but done with attention to every detail.
