Mt. Olivet Cemetery Hugo's Mount Olivet Cemetery is internationally famous for its Showman's Rest section which includes a special section of Circus Tents and Animals as monuments to the men and women who spent their lives entertaining American children and families as Circus performers.

Another tourist attraction in Mount Olivet Cemetery is the resting place of two Rodeo Legends. The first was Freckles Brown, who rode the never-before ridden bull "Tornado" in the National Finals Rodeo in Oklahoma City in 1966.

Later, Lane Frost, a young PRCA Champion Bull-Rider would be buried only a few feet from Brown's grave. Frost, for whom the International Movie "8 Seconds" was made, died after being gored by a bull during a rodeo performance. He said if anything ever happened to him he wanted to be buried next to Rodeo's all-time Bull-Riding legend, Freckles Brown.
