History and Features
While a stroll through the grounds reveals the names of many illustrious St. Louisans, including civic and corporate leaders, politicians and literary figures, the cemetery has been open to people of all religions, races and economic groups since it was founded. Commemorate the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial with a visit to the grave of William Clark, marked by an elaborate granite obelisk and bust facing the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. Reverend John Berry Meachum, the 19th century African American abolitionist preacher, also rests here.
Maps and self-guided tours are available through the cemetery office.
