Jayne Mansfield Grave

The final resting place of the Hollywood star who came to a tragic end. 

Jayne Mansfield was an American actress in film, theater, and television, a nightclub entertainer, a singer, and one of the early Playboy Playmates. She was a major Hollywood sex symbol of the 1950s and early 1960s.

On June 29, 1967 around 2am in Slidell, Louisiana a 1966 Buick Electra carrying Jayne and five other passengers plowed into the back of a tractor-trailer, obscured by haze released by a mosquito fogger.

A heart-shaped headstone marks the final resting place of actress Jayne Mansfield, born Vera Jane Palmer in the town of Bryn Mawr, PA in 1933.
