Reviewed October 13, 2012

Before you go, do a little research on-line. You can search for people and find out where their graves are using the cemetery's on-line search. To have some preset markers, it is much more interesting. The architecture is beautiful. The drive through gives you a real tour through St. Louis history.

“This place is so cool!!!!!”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

WOW what a cemetery. Rich in history, beautiful works of art for monuments, and rolling hills to walk and enjoy. This cemetery offers an excellent look in the past of St. Louis history and a who's who's in St. Louis. You can easily spend a couple of hours walking around, looking at the different monuments and just enjoying all the history.

A must see if you are a history buff!

“Rich in History”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

This is a landmark that stands out . Rich in History from the past. The gardens are the best. It is like Shaw garden in a cemetery. Land sculptors all over the place.
