Cemeteries can be places of great artistic and
historical significance. They can also contain many lapidary oddities such
as this stone in Buffalo Springs Cemetery near Stanford in Lincoln County.
We can surmise from his stone, that W.G. McBee was a blacksmith. His stone
was made in the shape of an anvil mounted to a stump and is complete with the
hammer and even the rods used to hold the anvil fast to the stump.
