Sources for Iron Fencing
Bringing a little bit of the cemetery to your own backyard
I've fallen in love with a wrought-iron fence around a local cemetery. All I know about it is that the cemetery was incorporated in 1868 and the fencing was made by a company in Ohio. Is there any way I might be able to obtain additional sections for my own property?

Roger Cook replies: That exact pattern might be harder to find than a needle in a haystack, but if you have the time, here's one way to go about it.
First, check all the salvage yards in your area and on the Web to see if you can find matching fence sections. You could post photos on eBay or on a forum that covers old houses or antique ironwork.
