A couple of old, leaning tombstones in a little fenced-in plot is all that remains of the Vedder family cemetery. The mall was built around it.

Cemetery at the Mall

Cemeteries and malls don't usually mix, but at this mall, there's one right by the door. Supposedly the only way they could build the Rotterdam Square Mall was to leave the Vedder family cemetery be. They just built the mall around it.
