Cathleen’s Chapel Walking Tour
Walking is the best way to experience a cemetery. It allows us to get up close to observe trees and plants as well as the symbols and images on monuments. The tour will begin inside the Hotchkiss Chapel built in 1909. On the road, we’ll walk to the final resting place of Adolphus and Lily Busch, several Civil War generals, Steamboat captains, a contemporary artist and the founder of kindergarten.
Some of the names you may not recognize but their stories will intrigue you.
