Fiberglass "Muffler Men" were constructed as roadside advertisements in the 1960s and 70s to hold mufflers, hotdogs, axes, spaceships, and more.
Sometimes they hold nothing but our attention - as is the case with this Muffler Man, who has been celebrating Native American culture since 1970!

Things got weird when we stopped at confusion hill. @missmac207 lost her mind and her sense of gravity. #roadsideoddities #roadsideamerica #getweird

My friend Greg Butler hanging with a sphinx with the face of Joseph Smith. This is at Gilgal Garden, Salt Lake City. It is a small park that was once the back yard of a eccentric and devout Mormon who created these sculptures. #utah #saltlakecity #roadsideoddities #roadsideamericana #roadtrip

Queen Street Skinny House - Built in 1830 (almost a hundred years before this vintage photo even!) to block a noisy alley. It is only seven feet wide. #darringtonroadtrip #weirddc #roadsideamerica #roadsideoddities #roadsideattraction

7 story office building shaped like a picnic basket?! Basket cases! #longaberger #cantsellit #roadsideoddities

This place exists pretty close to my work, and after not checking it out for a year, I finally decided to take a look and later, research it's history. I got more than I bargained for.
According to the UTC Forensic Anthropologist who wrote the article in question on the Ruth Cofer Cemetery (available at the Hamilton County Genealogy website), there's a lot more eerie history than I ever anticipated relating to this "pauper& #39;s cemetery." Formerly exposed human remains were once visible amidst the unclaimed bodies and unmarked graves, traceable back to a now-razed nearby asylum, as well as the still functioning Silverdale prison.
It also seems, when people couldn't afford a proper burial during the Great Depression, the city simply put their bodies here - and this practice continues to this day. Lastly, as pictured (as if to make things more unsettling), multiple child graves are placed very closely to one another, due to an early 1900's plague of tuberculosis that swept the city.

Combined with the funeral home across the street, it's no wonder there's some spooky juju going on at the station late at night (according to some employees, who are brave enough to stay behind that late, at least....). 👻
