Dayton, Ohio: Crypt of Agnes Moorehead

Eternal resting spot of Agnes Moorehead, best known as "Endora" the campy mother witch character on the TV series Bewitched.

Dayton Memorial Park

Address:
8135 N. Dixie Drive, Dayton, OH
Directions:
Dayton Memorial Park. North side of the city. I-75 exit 59. Turn west onto Benchwood-Wyse Rd. Drive a half-mile. Turn right onto N. Dixie Drive. Drive a half-mile. Turn left into the cemetery, near the pond. Follow the widest road past two smaller mausoleums toward the back. The Memorial Abbey is the one you're looking for. Enter through the front doors and go up a short flight of steps toward the receiving area; it is (I believe) the first hallway on the left, on the left-hand side, about midway up. She is buried next to her parents, who lived in Dayton.

Agnes Moorehead grave. Grave of Agnes Moorehead, Doomed "Bewitched" Actress

In the large Memorial Abbey building at the back of the Dayton Memorial Gardens lies the vault of actress Agnes Moorehead (of Citizen Kane and Bewitched fame). Decorations left around the vault lead one to believe that she acquired quite a camp following as Bewitched's "Endora" -- the vases are festooned with feather boas, plastic beads, and a mysterious set of what appear to be antique handcuffs dangling from a length of leopard-print fabric.

Agnes Moorehead is one of the many actors affected by the "Conqueror Curse," named for the movie The Conqueror that was filmed on a freshly-used atom bomb test site. A disproportionate number of the cast and crew of that film fell victim to untimely cancer deaths, even accounting for the heavy smoking habits of the day.
