Bishop/Gillette Headstone

The “Lady in Granite” is the gravestone for the Gillette family, and the ghost is believed to be that of Matilda Gillette. The image of her reclining head appeared on the dark grave and nothing has been able to remove it, even repeated polishing of the stone. Legend has it that over time her whole image will be formed and she will be free to haunt the local community.
