Famous Graves I’ve Visited

Cemetery tourism is actually a “thing” and if you’ve never searched a graveyard for a famous headstone, you’ve been missing out. It’s a little history mixed with a scavenger hunt with some mystery and horror thrown in for good luck. This post is a work in progress, but will contain pictures of some of my more famous finds with locations.

Searching for a particular grave? Google maps can take you directly to some of the more famous ones, but Findagrave.com can often give you coordinates, maps, and photos. There’s also many groups who are interested in not only visiting cemeteries, but maintaining some of the forgotten monuments.

Here’s a link to a Google photo album:
