Legend has it that back in the old days, grave robbing was a much bigger problem than, say, today. It is because of this that many believe that so many structures were built around gravesites at the numerous cemeteries in Central City.

These grave robbing deterrents are often made of metal and are in the form of a fence, sometimes with a gate, and sometimes even have roofs over the entire gravesite resembling more of a cage than a fence.
