Famous Bull Tombstone And Time Capsule

If you love beef, Angus beef, this is worth a stop for a Kodak moment. The gravestone is located to the left of west entrance, a little overgrown by the ground cover ivy. The limestone fence and plaque is directly in front of west entrance. This marks the time capsule location. Huge Angus sign located on the south side.

Prince Eric of Sunbeam, Bull of the Century

There is a grave marker for a bull just outside the front door of the American Angus Association. Some of the people I asked said it wasn't really a grave, but some said it was.
