Captain Hook’s Tomb doesn’t belong to the pirate from Peter Pan. It belongs to former riverboat captain Isaac Newton Hook (1819-1906), who decided to design his own grave with a rounded top so his wife wouldn’t dance on it, according to legend. There used to be a small platform on top with a boat “to take him away in case of a flood.” There was a flood, which indeed took the boat away. The question is, was he in it?
