A VERY Unique Grave Site - LX3
Oct 25, 2009

On a beautiful hilltop, near the Western North Carolina town of Robbinsville, stands a most unusual grave site. Buried there, are Thomas Jefferson Hooper and his wife, Catherine Colvard Hooper. This unique grave, called "The Sheltered Grave" by local residents, has an interesting story, dating back to the American Civil War.
