A cemetery for pets near Highway 58. Each burial plot is marked with a small wooden cross. Additionally, several plots have accompanying makeshift tombstones which denote the animal's cause of death: "Butch" died of natural causes, "Scotty" was killed by a "reckless driver," "Brownie" was hit by a "dirty Ford," and "Fabian" tragically lost his life to a "mowing machine."
