I'm from the Minneapolis area and visited this cemetery to research my genealogy. It's an amazing place, and I recognized many of the names I heard growing up ----- Loring, Pillsbury, and Hubert Humphrey. They offer a self guided walking tour that I didn't take, but would like to take in the future. I didn't know this place existed, and I found it very impressive.

My friend just had breast cancer surgery and this place called her less than a week later to ask her if she'd like to buy a plot. Lovely cemetery, but disgusting, tasteless, callous marketing practices.
