Wood Shaft, Allegheny Cemetery

In this section of the Allegheny Cemetery are several circular burial plots, in which there is usually a prominent central monument—like an obelisk—with a number of graves orbiting it, all inside a stone ring. The Wood plot includes this somewhat elaborate shaft, which originally supported an urn at the top; the urn has fallen, and old Pa Pitt sure is glad he wasn’t there when it happened.
