Was nice to stop by and spend some time at James Deans grave. A must do for any fan. Was able to pay our respects to him after all these years. Always wanted to make the drive and finally got the time to do it.

It is informative to see the cemetery. It gives the history of James Dean. I enjoyed the visit. It's a good idea to bring a camera to take pictures of the tomb stone.

Go PAST the Vet Memorial to the next drive. Second row at the top. Look for the white stones on both sides of the road.

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.

We were driving through Fairmount on the way from I-69 to Kokomo so I decided to stop. My teenage son had no clue who James Dean was so I made him look up his bio online. The cemetery is larger than I expected and ended...More

I stopped as part of a day trip out to Fairmount. This was a very emotional experience and I felt incredibly privileged, as an Australian fan to see this site. Needless to say I would like to return one day to pay my respects once...More

There are numerous web sites dedicated to this plot of James Dean. It's easy to find once you get to the cemetery as they do have signs that tell you where to turn. There are all kinds of flowers and other momentoes left at his...More
