A new reader to this site has taken some pictures of the cemetery in Fox Run, Geneva Illinois. Except for this cemetery, there is no visual evidence that Illinois Youth Center at Geneva ever existed in Geneva or that hundreds of children, young men and women spent years behind bars at the facility.

It seems somehow fitting that Devin’s photos have a lonely, eerie feel.

These simple stones remind us of babies and young woman forgotten by society. Thank you for sharing these photos with us, Devin.
