I have a 15-year-old daughter who has been begging for us to travel to St. Louis to see General Sherman's grave. She is a serious Civil War buff who is fascinated by Sherman. While I wasn't really ready to travel 6 hours one-way just to...More

We went here yesterday to practice using my new camera. It was beautiful. The entrance to the cemetery is gorgeous. It was a little more confusing that Bellefontaine which is well laid out for the tourist. At any rate, we finally got a groove and...More

I am an amatuer genealogist and this placce is a must see. It is one of the old style cemeteries and very well kept. There are some very interesting sections that reflect a culture such as the Italian section where each headstone has an embedded...More

Worth seeing. Surrounding neighborhood leaves much to be desired and I wouldn't recommend walking around there much but once inside the cemetary all is easy to forget. I could've spent the entire afternoon here. Make sure you get there early enough for a stop in...More
