North Bend, Ohio: Tomb of President William Henry Harrison and First Lady Sara Harrison

William Henry Harrison and his wife were entombed in a vault in the family burial ground, but the place gradually became so deserted that their last surviving child's body was stolen and sold to a Cincinnati medical school. In 1922 the state cleaned up the place and erected a towering monolith over the crypt. It looks like a futuristic fascist watchtower, and scares away grave robbers.
