Local stories say that Harriet Anne Marshall (Annie) was an accomplished violinist, and the daughter of a wealthy doctor. She became ill and died of diptheria, and her parents placed a statue of her playing the violin at her grave. Cemetery visitors have reported hearing the violin at night, although many say that vandals have broken the bow off the statue.

My childhood playground
I spent summers with my Dad in Centralia Il. He is also buried in this cemetery. I never heard the violin but the land and monument have a particular energy to them. She is the crown jewel and the most elaborate memorial in the cemetery. If your in the area it's an interesting stop but not notable or worthy of a destination. Posted 9/16/20
Went there at night with my sister and girlfriend back in 2013. We walked up by the grave and sounded like she was playing her violin. We looked all over the grave and was nothing on it but there was a toy sensor on the ground that played when you walked by it. if you go look on the ground it might still be there Posted 12/28/19
