“32 flavors, and one grave”

Stop over to Mountainside Cemetery to see the grave of Dr. Pepper. To be sure, the fabled doctor had no role in the making of the delicious soft drink, rather the inventor chose to honor the beverage with his namesake.

All love and respect to Dr. Pepper. It is located in Mountain View Cemetery and it really is beautiful. Look for the flag post and the grave is located just past it.

A quick stop, and a BEAUTIFUL cemetery. No one was there when we went mid morning. It was a little foggy, a little spooky, and truly gorgeous. Mountain View Cemetery holds up to its name. If you love Dr. Pepper, it's worth going - JUST BE RESPECTFUL. Take your picture and leave.

Somehow we could not find this. We used GPS, and were just trying to do a quick stop on our way through town and ended up on a dead end road, where the GPS said it should have been a little ahead of us. There was a fence up across the road. If we had more time we would have searched around, but instead we took the dead end as a sign to keep moving.

The grave is not very hard to find if you use one of the uploaded pictures for reference.
