At the top of Maple Hill Cemetery lays the Mitchell Family Monument. The monument features a goddess-like figure watching over the headstones of the Mitchell family and has two sitting benches on either side of her. The date of installation is unknown but it was placed with donations from the Mitchell family.   

Info about the sculptor of this monument:

The sculptor's name was Nellie Verne Walker. She wanted to follow in her fathers footsteps as a sculptor but at 4'8" and 100 pounds, many doubted she had the strength. She was called the "ladder lady" as she spent so much time working on a ladder. Her offices were in Chicago. In 1915 she was commissioned to do the Mitchell monument.
