Welcome to the Town of the Dead
For 75 years, Colma, Calif., has been steadily collecting bodies, and it’s constantly getting ‘deader.’ As of 2009, there were 1,500 living residents and 1.5 million marked graves in the city. Seventy-three percent of the land belongs to the dead with the rest occupied by people who have a great sense of humor. The town’s motto is, “It’s Great To Be Alive In Colma.”
