Joe Paterno’s Final Resting Place
The public displays of mourning have come to an end. The items around the statue have been removed, the ceremonies are over, and Joe Paterno has reached his final resting place. Along with the statue, it is a location where Penn Staters will go for generations to pay respect to a man who has done so much for us all.
To visit the grave site:
- Drive on South Atheron St. 1.7 miles, turn left on E Branch Road.
- Go 0.7 miles and take a slight left on Country Club Road.
- You should see the graveyard immediately on your right.
- JoePa’s location is in directly next to the trees on the farthest side.
It’s a small, unassuming cemetery near Lemont, directly in the shadow of Mount Nittany. And now, it’s the final home of our beloved coach, Joe Paterno.
