Fictional president “Frank Underwood” laid to rest in SC town

South Carolina News

GAFFNEY, SC (WCBD) – Just in time for Election Day, a send-off for the fictional “House of Cards” president Frank Underwood.

A headstone has been set up at a cemetery in Gaffney, South Carolina and fans of the Netflix series have been stopping by to pay their respects.

“House of Cards has generated a lot of interest and brought a lot of people to Gaffney, South Carolina,” said mayor Henry Jolly.

The new headstone at Oakland Cemetery reads ‘Francis J. Underwood – 46th President of the United States.’

Of course, in reality there are only 45 presidents.

A Gaffney-area florist is placing flowers at the grave a few times a week and there was even an obituary in the local newspaper.

The new season of “House of Cards” was released Friday.
