Officially dedicated in 1839, the Greenmount Cemetery in Baltimore is the final resting place to over 65,000 people. One grave consisted of a stone casket encased in curved glass. Roses were carved beautifully into the sarcophagus.
A solitary casket remained in a corner of the pitch black vault. It was no ordinary casket however; it was made of steel, and had eighteen or so clamps on the lid. It appeared to be a special container for bodies that were to be stored for a long period of time, or perhaps infected with a contagious disease - it had the ability to be sealed without contaminating the vault air, and was impervious to seepage.
The funeral procession that never moves...otherwise known as the Henry Wooldridge Monuments. In truth, it's one man's homage to himself in a 17 x 33-foot burial plot. Paying their respects to the vault containing the actual Henry are 2 stone versions of himself, his mom, 4 brothers, 3 sisters, 2 nieces, a horse, 2 dogs and a fox, all standing inside the iron fence and staring East. All the statues were done before he was, so imagine how weird that funeral was. Mayfield, Kentucky
