Long Description:
Here lies old Jack Crow
It was too bad he had to go
While on this Earth he was Hell bent
And we knew some day he would up and went

For the better part of the Twentieth Century, "Jack Crow" owned the National Clothespin Company in nearby Montpelier. The factory, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was the last wooden clothespin manufacturer in the United States. Today it produces plastic clothespins and barrettes.

Jack's sister-in-law is noted as saying that he originally wanted the giant clothespin on his grave to have a real spring in it so that children could teeter on it.
