Stopped here after visiting the museum. Is literally a mile away right after the Veterans memorial. Second row top of the hill is the location.

We visited this cemetery to find James B. Dean's grave. The whole cemetery is beautifully laid out. The gravestone is small, and his Aunt and Uncle (who rough him up) are buried at the side of him.

The cemetery contains the gravesite of James dean. Such a tragic end to such a young person. His parents are buried along side of him
