The Pyramid is a mausoleum in St. Andrews Church cemetery containing the remains of an eccentric man, Mr. McKenzie. Rumour has it McKenzie is sitting upright in the pyramid holding a winning card hand. The cemetery is on Rodney Street.
Mr. McKenzie apparently spent his wealth on gambling after the passing of his wife. Having lost all of his money and approaching death, McKenzie became so concerned that he was going to hell that he built a mausoleum to keep him inside and the devil out. He thought that as a gambler he would have to play a game of cards against the devil for his soul when he died. He left instructions that when interred his corpse would be holding a hand of cards, thus the devil would not be able to interrupt the game he was playing. (Apparently the Devil doesn't interrupt games of solitaire.)
