Atchison, Kansas, hometown of Amelia Earhart, sits so close to the mighty Missouri river that you can walk down Main street and dip your toe in.
I spent a long afternoon exploring Mount Vernon cemetery in Atchison a few weeks ago.
There were several intriguing epitaphs, even a Shakespearean quote.
Have you ever seen stones autographed by the deceased? There were several in Mount Vernon.There were MANY more interesting graves I’m not posting. Mt. Vernon’s definitely worth a visit. It’s a few miles outside of town, near the Amelia Earhart Earthworks.
