Private Monument to Rocky Marciano

Not much to see, just a headstone and a couple of urns in a parking lot.

[David Cholewa, 01/24/2010]

Rocky was an undefeated heavyweight boxing champion. He had nothing much to do with Springfield, but the owner of an Italian specialty food store liked him and in the 1980s erected a tribute next to his store's parking lot.
