The Grave Of An Unidentified Black Man, Whose Body Was Left On Display For 35 Years
In 1929, the body of an older black man appeared in Ohio on the side of the road. No one ever identified the body nor knew where he came from. They found an address on him that only led to a vacant lot; the closest neighbor to the lot was named Eugene, so authorities gave him that name. Rather than burying the man, they put the body on display as a roadside attraction, given a new suit every year or so, and acted as a tourist attraction mummy for 35 years. At last, he was laid to rest and given a headstone in 1964.
