Laurel Hill Cemetery is full of interesting and unique headstones. It is more well known for its association with midgetville and a ghost named Annie. Annie’s Rd is supposed haunted by the ghost of a young woman who died when a car hit her after she decided to walk home from the prom. Another story says she was murdered and raped. She supposedly is buried in the Van Dyck mausoleum.
This very large elk is the centerpiece of a series of graves, laid out in a circle. On each side of the base of the elk are the words: justice, charity, fidelity, and brotherly love, the watchwords for the Elks organization. The Elk is visible from Route 80 (see pictures) and is mistaken by some for a deer, grazing on the hillside. Another large & noteworthy grave is that of Kaspinov family. It’s more of a monument then a grave, as if features life sized statues of both the son Oliver, and his wife Lence. Also included are several large pictures, all enclosed in a private secluded area constructed of gravel, stones and bushes. It is extremely large, extremely ornate and probably extremely expensive.
Another famous grave is that of Sal Giardino, known as the world’s greatest electrician. His grave is certainly one of the more colorful ones you’ll see. His daughter Kim died not so long after he did, and she received an equally colorful headstone. You can easily find the graves as they are in the middle of the cemetery.
