Lone Jewish Grave
The grave of eight month old Charles Brownstein was eventually named a historic landmark- but the journey to that status was not an easy one. It is the story of a family making an arduous two day journey so their young son could receive Jewish burial rights, and have his final resting place be in consecrated ground. It is also a sad story of vandalism and neglect. It is also one with a happy ending- a community rallying to preserve its history. State highways have literally been moved to honor the sacredness of little Charles' final resting place.
