Folk Art Headstones of Hoisington

These folk art headstones are spread throughout the cemetery, but fairly distinct. Very fun to look at.

Grave of Navy veteran.

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.
