Owosso, Michigan: Graveside Monument to Mr. Jefferson NickelA small granite monument engraved with both sides of the Jefferson Nickel. It calls attention to the grave of Felix Schlag, who designed the nickel in 1937 for a mere $1,000 prize.
- 1101 S. Washington St., Owosso, MI
- From downtown Owosso drive south on Hwy 71/Washington St. and continue south on Washington St. when it splits from Hwy 71. Drive south five blocks, and just past Harper St. turn left into Oak Hill Cemetery. Once you enter the cemetery, keep bearing left when you come to intersections. When you reach the last one, at the back of the cemetery (you'll see houses through the trees), you'll see the small monument on the right.

Had a hard time finding Mr. Jefferson Nickel. It is across from the Y section. The Y marker is on a tree in the corner of the cemetery. If you are standing in front of the tree with your back to it, this monument is across the street on the right corner.[Aubrie and Jerry, 02/06/2016]
