The Great Pyramids Are Not Something You’d Expect To Find In An Iowa Cemetery

Welcome to Hickory Grove Cemetery near Avery, Iowa. This small burial ground in Monroe County is unlike any other in the state of Iowa, and perhaps even in the whole country of America. What sets it apart? The Great Pyramids – there are three of them – perched in one corner of the cemetery, that’s what.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Did you know these three Great Pyramids existed right here in Iowa? Have you ever seen them for yourself? What’s your theory on why Axel Peterson wasn’t buried in one? Our theory is that his next-of-kin must not have been as big of an Ancient Egyptian historian as he was! Speaking of odd, unusual, bizarre, unexpected roadside attractions in Iowa, here’s a list of a bunch more. Sounds like the makings of a memorable Iowa road trip to us.
