Workers Unearth 145-Year-Old Casket Containing ‘Perfectly Preserved’ Body of Little Girl

Construction workers in San Francisco unearthed a 145-year-old casket containing the “perfectly preserved” body of a three-year-old girl.

The discovery was made on May 9 in the city’s Richmond District, an area that “contained a number of cemeteries” in the late 1800s.

According to the Los Angeles Times, “The 3 1/2 foot-long coffin” is made of “lead and bronze” and contains two windows. Through the windows, one can see a “blonde girl in a white dress holding a rose.” Her body is “surrounded by eucalyptus leaves.”

The casket was uncovered beneath the garage of Ericka Karner, who said that on one hand, she was “shocked” by the news, yet not “super surprised” because of “the history of the area.” She pointed out that numerous cemeteries in the Richmond District were moved in the early 1900s, and said the “unfathomable” part is that this little girl was “left behind.”

Garden of Innocence’s Elissa Davey said her organization has already secured funding to rebury the girl elsewhere.
