Grand Master Grave.

Grave of the Only Masonic Grand Master of America

The grave of Joseph Montfort is right beside the road in the front yard of the Masonic Lodge. It's also at a weird angle, like he was buried without any regard for where the lodge and the road were. The lodge, BTW, is the oldest free standing Masonic Lodge in the US.

A "weird angle"...you mean like a cryptic clue in a Dan Brown novel?
