Famous New England gravesites
Chester Greenwood(b. Dec. 4, 1858 d. July 5, 1937)
Claim to fame: Inventor of earmuffs
Buried: Fairview Cemetery, Farmington, Maine
Frustrated by having to choose between a bulky scarf or chilly ears while ice skating, 15-year-old Chester Greenwood came up with a solution — ear-shaped wire loops with fur. He later added an adjustable steel band to the creation and manufactured the "Champion Ear Protectors" — the world's first earmuffs — in his hometown of Farmington, Maine.
