Some old time actors buried in the cemetery, including the last of the three stooges. If you are into air history would be more of a must do. Building architecture is interesting to see. In general it seems the cemetary is somewhat run down. Still...More

Pay a visit to this cool place and see some history. The monument is very impressive with a lot of names that should be recognized. The adjoining cemetery is quite disappointing and really needs some maintenance.
