The lifelike sculptures of some of the grave markers are the main attraction at Hope Cemetery. Far left and at the back of the cemetery, look for the Brusa stone: A brooding angel, head on chin, legs crossed, trumpet on lap, sits beneath a Greek pillar and balustrade sculpture. . . . .Heading back out of the cemetery, pull over and check out the stones where you see the soccer ball stone. Look for a chair that serves as a grave marker, another with a classic Green Mountain viewcomplete with fence posts, rifle, fishing rod, dune buggy, and lots of trucks. One shows a Shell Oil truck driving through the mountains; another serves as a belated advertisement for the Benedini Well Company, depicting a truck in the process of digging an artesian well.
