“Stately, Elegant,Historic, Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Many well-known Minnesotans buried here including Hubert H. Humphrey and Paul Wellstone. No tacky lawn ornaments, balloons, and other junk allowed on graves. Beautiful, peaceful setting.

“Historic Cemetary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Here are interred famous people, the city's most prominent, as well as revolutionary, civil war, and later wars, fire and police, and even the circus. Ordinary people of all nationalities. Huge monuments, mausoleums and angels, as well as several chapels. It is a currently active cemetery. There is a lot of bird and animal life to be photographed as well

It's a large cemetary with lots of Minnesota historical markers. Be sure to visit the graves of Senator Paul Wellstone, Hubert Humphrey and many others.
