|I visited Chester Arthur's grave at the Albany
Rural Cemetery on July 20, 1996 with my brother Charlie and nephew Jeff.
It is my third dead president, and it was before I started taking pictures. So, I'll have to go back. It's only three hours from my house and my brother lives close by, so next time I go to see him, we'll go back.
|I revisited Arthur's grave on April 17, 2004. The directions to the gravesite is well marked and it is easy to find. We were in a hurry, this being the first of many stops that day, took our pictures and left for Kinderhook.|
Chester Arthur's grave in Albany Rural Cemetery. He is buried in the family plot near his wife, children and parents.
I think his monument is one of the more unique of all the presidents. I wonder what it would look like if they polished up the copper angel.
