  • We were there specifically to pay respects to William Clark. The cemetery is beautiful, and the route marked with the white line takes you by Mr. Clark's memorial. A lovely place.  more »

  • It is a beautiful cemetery. They give tours (which are 3 miles) but they need to be scheduled in advance. Last time I went through here, there were wild turkeys. Yes, I said it, wild turkeys. They didn't try to mess with anyone though. This place us humongous, with 314 acres. I also saw 2 raccoons go down into a sewer also. The service seemed to be very nice to us, and the manager was even more charming. 5 stars.
  • The grounds are jaw dropping. They aren't kidding when they compare themselves to The Botanical Garden. Be sure to grab a map because there are a handful of well known people buried here. You can also do a tour to get to know the layout but I recommend venturing out on your own after, there is a lot to see and the tour only touches on a few select sites.
  • Wow. Some serious money spent on the dead. Beautiful cemetary. Well worth the visit.
  • The walking tours are great. I went on the sunset tour and was able to experience so much but there was so much more to see and learn about this amazingly historic place.
  • Great cemetery to visit! Many great and famous people buried here. Well worth the visit!
