Hoisington, Kansas: Phil Webb's Folk Art Gravestones

Inspired by residents in his hometown cemetery who had tiny tombstones, folk artist Phil Webb has been adding new ones made of colorful cement that include little people and significant items in their lives. Kind of like retirement cartoons, except they're tombstones.
Address:
N. Cedar St., Hoisington, KS
Directions:
The cemetery is on the east edge of town. Its entrance is off of N. Cedar St., just south of Hwy 4/E. 9th St. It's a small, flat, treeless cemetery, so the colorful tombstones are easy to spot.
Admission:

Phil Webb's Folk Art Gravestones

An artist crafted headstones for unmarked graves in his local cemetery. Very endearing works of art. They are small in size relative to other graves, making them a bit difficult to find, but worth searching for! Absolutely go out of your way to stop and see.
