Howard Hill’s Grave

 

Howard Hill’s grave is located in the New Ashville Cemetery in St.Clair County, Alabama. If you look closely you will see bows and arrows carved into the headstone and arrows stuck into the grave! This is a tribute to one of the greatest archers of modern times. Hill was born in 1899 in Wilsonville, Alabama. He was a star athlete in high school and he played several sports at Auburn. His skills with the longbow landed him trick/stunt shooting gigs in the movies of the time. He played in several Errol Flynn movies and was said to be a good friend of Flynn.  He was equally famous for his hunting feats. He died in 1975.  Check out the link below:
