“Full of history”
Reviewed 24 December 2013

This might not be your first choice for a lesson in history, but this cemetery has a lot of St Louis history. Lots of significant tombs and historical figures, it's a beautiful park.

“Surprisingly good tour”
Reviewed 14 December 2013 via mobile

A group of friends and I took the door here. It was a great tour. Very informative. The history was interesting. Amazing how many influential St. Louisians are buried here!

“Beautiful and historic”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

Not in the best area. Go early - don't linger too long. Stay in your car and visit the historic graves. Be sure to go during the early part of the day

“If you like exploring cemetaries this one will be a hit!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Lots of history here, many famous people are buried here, including William Clark of Lewis and Clark and too many others to name. Read up on the graves before you go or arrange for a tour. I'm not a graveyard kind of person, but this was a really fascinating place!
