Beautiful oak trees and interesting personal items left at the alien grave rock.

Space Alien Grave

The hardest part about finding the grave is that people keep stealing its grave marker. Previous visitors gave directions to look for a small slab with a UFO carved into it, but that and several other stones have since been pilfered. The latest marker is a giant piece of granite, hopefully too heavy to abscond with, and it is covered with gifts ranging from pennies to a large toy battle ax. It's on the right side of the cemetery, near the front, under an old tree.

When you enter the old gates by the historical marker, the alien gravesite is to the right, up near the other historical marker for the oldest gravesite. It's past the headstones in the fenced in area.
