Don't know how I've lived in STL for so long and never heard of this place! Great walk (3.14 miles if you follow white line) and great tour (Tom was our guide). I will be back for the walk alone!!

If you like wandering through old graveyards, this one can keep you occupied for many hours. Stop in at the front gate to get maps of important sites, or download the app!

Some of St. Louis's most prominent citizens are buried here in magnificent tombs and beneath majestic gravestones. The cemetary tour is a must for history buffs.

This place is very peaceful, beautiful, and historic. The staff is very polite and helpful. All that said, the cemetery is situated in the most dangerous section of the City of St. Louis. Exit from I-70 at W. Florissant and travel west to the cemetery....More
