See Mausoleum Row, William Clark, William Bouroughs, Sara Teasdale, Adolphus Busch and so many soldiers from both sides of the Civil War. Amazing free driving tour, pick up at front office and other free tours listed on website. A must see for historians.

What a fascinating place! Stop by the visitor's center and pick up a map for a tour of the various people buried here or for the location of special trees. The place is gorgeous and has some incredible mausoleums and gravestones.

This was a very unusual way to learn about the history of St. Louis. The walking tour was well conducted and interesting. One can learn a lot about an area from its cemeteries.
