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.

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.
