I would not really call this a tourist activity although it is a peaceful spot. I went to the cemetery to see the gravesite of Eddie Rickenbacker, the World War I ace pilot. First opened in 1849, it certainly has a number of historical gravesites....More

This is a very large cemetery. Office staff go out of there way to be of assistance. Only problem is the grass mowers cover gravestones with cuttings which discolor the stones.
