Showman's Rest

Sunday, September 27, 2015

Hugo, Oklahoma calls itself 'Circus City' -- it's been home to the Kelly Miller Circus since 1938 -- they're still touring. The city is also home to the second-largest Asian elephant population in North America, the Endangered Ark Foundation, also started by the Miller family.

This is from a visit we made last year.

These markers delineate their section, Showmen's Rest, of Mount Olivet cemetery:

On the ledge, this reads: There's nothing left but empty popcorn sacks and wagon tracks - the circus is gone:
