I have been to this cemetery a few times. It's old, but the visits never get old. Very fascinating to look at the different tombs, the years of life and death on the tombs, and even looking around at the tombs that are partially sunk...More

We walked through this cemetery and found the grave sites very interesting. So many date back to the early 1800’s, very humbling. However it is sad to see so many crumbling and deteriorating. It seems mostly due to age and Mother Nature. Definitely a site...More

St Louis cemetery has been split up and all seem to be within walking distance of one another. Me and some friends were looking to pass some time and initially went to St Louis 1. We found you could only enter with a 20 dollar...More

This cemetery is split into 3 parts. I didn't know much about it but was still nice to visit. Tombs are above ground and housed by more than one person. Nice to respect the one's who have moved on.

Worth the stop. It was cool to see the dates, or las thereof, on the stones. Some of them even include what they did in life.

My wife and I went around 12pm, plenty of free parking on the street. No charge to enter. Lots of very cool architecture. Revolutionary war veterans, ww1 and ww2 veterans. We only played our respects. Probably not the safest place, I surely wouldn't go after...More

Yes. The cemetery is open to the public without a guide. But might want to consider hiring one to learn more about its history, architecture Nd residents.
