Undated, probably created between 1958-early 1970s. Ruth Havey redesigned the space around the urn and pedestal by adding a Mexican pebble design in 1958. The grass was replaced with gravel also around 1957-1958. Grass and gravel was alternated over the years until the grass was set permanently in place in the early 1970s.
