We did the 3.5 mile self guided tour with map that takes you past all the captains of industry from the 19th century, civil War generals, fur traders and more. It is also a lovely arboretum and fascinating architecture.

We were there specifically to pay respects to William Clark. The cemetery is beautiful, and the route marked with the white line takes you by Mr. Clark's memorial. A lovely place.

We enjoyed seeing the large tour made available to visitors. Be sure to stop and grab a brochure to follow along. The beauty and historic value of the grave sites were very humbling to see.

There is a lot of history here. If you have ancestors who were not Catholic, look to see if they are buried here. It's a beautiful cemetery close to downtown St. Louis
