Visitor Tips and News About Grave of the Weeping Woman
Weeping Woman Grave
The Riverview Cemetery is a beautiful and well-kept resting place for departed Parkersburg-area notables. A large monument called the "Weeping Woman" watches over the Jackson family plot in the back. Legend states that if you are (relatively) pure of heart and bring her a token -- a coin, a flower, something like that -- she can grant wishes. But if your intentions are less than respectful, her spirit is known to trip people and pull their hair. We made it out, so we must be more or less okay.[Kitsa, 04/19/2017]
