However, this isn't just any cemetery...this one holds a very special secret and has something that is pretty unbelievable.

What secret can be found in Old Town Cemetery in Newburgh, New York?

A pyramid...

No, I'm not kidding. The cemetery holds a mausoleum for Ship Captain Henry Robinson, his wife Sarah and their two daughters. The mausoleum was built by Alexander Jackson Davis and sources say it's the only Egyptian Revival tomb to have a mastaba (flat-roofed ancient tomb) and a pyramid. Sadly it fell into disrepair and reportedly became overgrown, but it was restored back in 1999.

Does the name Alexander Jackson Davis sound familiar? It should, he helped create the Dutch Reformed Church in Newburgh. That's pretty cool...

So technically Newburgh, New York does have a pyramid and it's another cool thing we add to list of things Newburgh has to offer. If you have seen it before, let us know what it's like on the station app:
