Circular metal tomb, built circa 1877. Rumor has it that it was brought from the Brooklyn Navy Yard on an ox cart, and was one of the original prototype turrets for the Union battleship Monitor. Though smaller in size than the actual turret used on the Civil War gunship, it does have the "Hershey's Kiss" outline of the original design, though the flowerpot welded to the top has dubious military value.
