Horse Drawn Hearse Under Glass

If you're going to see the hearse, might as well see some of the famous music and film celebrities laid to rest inside the park. This is where Gene Vincent (rockabilly singer), Roy Brown (R&B shouter who did the original version of "Good Rockin' Tonight"), and Tor Johnson (Ed Wood actor known for his role in Plan Nine From Outer Space) are all buried.
