Interesting Coffin Shaped Box Tomb

Found this beautiful box tomb at Rose Hill Cemetery in Harrison, AR.
I have seen coffin shaped ledger stones and I have seen box tombs but not combine like this.  I think its very nice and unique. Also in amazing shape to be 125 years old.

  1. The sculptural piece on top looks a bit plonked, and is clearly carved from different stone. Does is really belong there? The tomb is, as you say, very nice, very interesting.

  2. I thought the same thing. But I have not been able to find out for sure.
