Belton, Missouri: Carry Nation's Grave

The anti-saloon hatchet-whacker died in Kansas; her body was hauled here and buried in an unmarked grave. The Woman's Christian Temperance Union later paid for a tombstone and had it placed in an easily-seen spot.

Carry Nation's Grave

Turn on First street into the cemetery -- we we're driving in circles and the lawn care guy stopped and goes "You looking for Carry Nation's grave?" I was like, "That obvious?" Good guy and we found it easily after that.
