This gallows is a restoration of the one on which John Baker and Charles Crouch were hanged on August 26, 1974, for the crime of murder. Before being hanged, and with permission of the officials, John Baker sang the following song:"Faded Flowers"Oh! The flowers that I saw in the wildwood,
have since dropped their beautiful leaves,
and the many dear friends of my childhood,
have slumbered for years in their graves.
Oh! The blooms of the flower I remember,
and the smiles I shall never more see;
for the cold chilly winds of December,
stole my flowers, my companions, from me.
There were many verses to the song, and all were sung with considerable feeling! Charles Crouch had nothing to say.
