"Why buy a grave, when you can buy the whole cemetery?

Grandview Memorial Cemetery in Madison, Indiana is for sale. The Jefferson County Sheriff will auction off the cemetery on Febuary 23.

The cemetery has a history of problems. Bodies had to be exhumed a few years ago to fix water-logged graves. The owner is still dealing with lawsuits dating back to 2006 and the bank has now foreclosed on the property.

NOTE: This was just edited into this blog. I decided to see if there were many other stories of cemeteries for sale listed on the Internet. I guess I just did not think about this "Industry!" Here is one site I found.
