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.
