Visitor Tips and News About Grave of Talking TV Horse Mr. Ed
My boyfriend and I went to stop and see this landmark. It is in the backyard of what looks to be an abandoned hoarder home. The weeds were waist-high, so make sure you have jeans and sneakers and aren't afraid of bugs. You should also know that the stone is completely flat into the ground (not a standing tombstone). It is about 3x2-foot large (Go during daylight or you will never find it). The people across the street were EXTREMELY helpful. We actually found out a lot about the history of the Mr. Ed burial, and also that the neighbor's father was a famous Cherokee archer, Joe Thorton, who was world class in archery in the 1960s.[Annette, 01/09/2013]
Visited the grave of Mr. Ed. The headstone is still knocked down and the house it is behind is vacant.
The driveway for the house that the marker is located behind is off of Hwy 82. If you google map this address, 13600 East 710 Rd, Tahlequah, Oklahoma. The house is the drive just to the west.[Neil Hesselgrave, 02/07/2012]
We were able to find the grave by asking a few neighbors. The gentleman across the street was super friendly and told us all about the way his boys used to go visit Mr Ed... That being said, the house is now a rental, the cherry tree is gone, and the monument had been knocked over.[Photo Tips For Moms, 08/19/2010]
We went to visit this site and spend a good amount of time trying to locate the headstone. It appears where this should be is now a new housing development and the headstone is nowhere to be found.[Mr. Crispy, 07/01/2010]
