Endearing Epitaphs in America's Oldest Pet Cemetery

Founded in 1896, Hartsdale Pet Cemetery in Hartsdale, New York, is the oldest pet cemetery in America. It has seen over 80,000 internments, and there are rows and rows of monuments to beloved pets to explore. The NYC Obscura Society recently took a tour, and recorded some of the more interesting epitaphs to share. The stone above paraphrases a quote from artist B. Kliban.

Many of the graves, once purchased, are used for more than one pet. This family apparently liked the name Flossie. Read about the cemetery, and see plenty more gravestones at Atlas Obscura.
