We learned at the St.Louis History Museum that some of the people who made their mark on the city's past are buried at Bellefontaine Cemetery. We may have visited the place at least once in the past, but now with St.Louis history so new in our minds it seemed to make sense to revisit the place. The cemetery began in 1849 and continues to evolve as an active, non profit cemetery. After proceeding through the main gate we stopped at the park's main office to get a map of the cemetery. The map showed us the burial location of 58 notables, "just a few of the famous and fascinating people who lie at peace within our grounds".
