The monument is 3 graves for the Geisel family. However, there is no information provided as to the significance of the family. The parking also contains three picnic tables (with view) that are old and moss covered.

I stopped by to see if anybody had ever put up some information about the family, but alas, I guess that will never happen. Google has info, but it's too bad somebody doesn't write something up. The little cemetery is fairly neat and tidy. Do...More

As other reviewers have commented, this is a small, quaint piece of history that would occupy visitors or a family for ~5-10 minutes. Offers a nice place to think about the past, and to catch your breath after a hike at Otter Point.

This place is pretty much only a lawn area, picnic table and graveyard. There is nothing to do there except maybe a place to stretch your legs and have a picnic. Don't plan a day or a trip around it

Either we did not find the real Geisel Monument, in which case better signage is certainly needed, or the monument is simply a family grave site. It was not worth the drive to get there.

Care of foliage and quite-tude. It was nice... but only go if you are near the area. It is a bit off the beaten track, and its a sad story.

If you like local history, you will find this interesting! A monument to early pioneers who lived and died there.
