A Texas high school football stadium was built on a graveyard in 1935.

I n 1935, a cemetery that had fallen into disrepair was moved to make room for a stadium in San Saba, which is known as the Pecan Capital of the World. However, not all of the bodies were moved, and over the years, both tombstones and remains have been found under the playing surface, according to multiple reports that also say as much as 50 bodies may still buried under the field.  

On Thursday, Texas Football Life, which has multiple social media accounts devoted to the culture of football in the state, asked its followers on Twitter: “Would you play on a field that could have bodies underneath it?” The graphic included with the tweet says, “Creepy But True.”

At least they have a sense of humor about it. AFAIC, economic reuse makes sense.
