Celebrating James Dean

Fairmount festival happens Sept. 26 to 29

(Continued)

Local historyLocal landmarks can also be toured, with more information available at the museum. Many people stop at the cemetery where Dean was buried. Hikade said the gravesite is a year-round destination.“You’ll find pennies, rocks, cigarettes, beer cans – open and closed, flowers and teddy bears any day of the week,” said Hikade. Quite a few even kiss the tombstone. “The only way to get the lipstick off is with turpentine.”One stop visitors won’t be touring in Fairmount is the old high school where Dean at one time performed. “The high school is really history,” said Hikade. In July, the building began to collapse. Hikade noted the chimneys are all that seem to be holding it up at this point. The site is roped off. “I don’t think anything has fallen in the last week.” A few years back, the stage was removed from the old school. Hikade said the Fairmount Lions Club salvaged the stage and is raising funds so that it can one day be incorporated and enclosed in another facility.
