Beautifully kept. Make sure you pick up a map at the office. It was easy to walk round and very pleasant under the shady trees.

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.
