Doll House grave.

Elaborate Doll House Grave Of Nadine Earles

Very creepy! The rest of the cemetery is completely flat -- just this little house stands out. Definitely worth the 10 minute detour off I-85!

Interesting little grave. The doll house has some newer toys as well as older ones. Stop by, pay your respects, and look in the windows.

Little Nadine has been dead since 1933, so it's remarkable that her tomb's toy supply is being restocked.

The little brick house in the cemetery is filled with dolls, stuffed animals, a bike, and little Nadine's grave. Her parents are buried outside of the house. Creepy but sweet.
