Ed Gein's grave
Gein is buried at Plainfield Cemetery, alongside his mother, father, and brother. The exact coordinates of the grave are listed below.
Originally, his grave was marked by a small rectangular headstone. However, it was slowly vandalized over the years by souvenir hunters who kept chipping off pieces of stone from it.
In June 2000, it vanished altogether. Although the headstone was eventually recovered the following year, it was never returned to the cemetery.
Currently, it is being held in storage at the Wautoma museum. The museum has no plans to put it on display due to the controversy surrounding his crimes.
Gein is buried near the headstone of Eleanor Adams, whose grave he dug up and emptied in 1951 (six years before his arrest).
Adams' grave remains empty to this day.
