Jamestown, New York: Lucille Ball's Burial Place

It's rather easy to pay your respects to Lucille Ball during a visit to Jamestown.

The television star died in 1989, and her ashes had been in California. But the family eventually decided that she should be back in her native Jamestown with her original family, and so Lucy's remains were moved across the country.

The cemetery is located north of downtown and just off Route 60. The main entrance is at 907 Lakeview Ave. Drive in the main gate, and look for the faded hearts on the road. (Note to maintenance crew: Time to redo those hearts.) The family grave is fairly close to the entrance, and you can see it from the road if you look down a path.

We'll always love Lucy.
