Bellefontaine Cemetery is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and noted for its contribution to cemetery design in the nineteenth century, and many of Bellefontaine’s tombs and monuments are recognized as important, unique features of the cemetery. Not only is the art and architecture at Bellefontaine Cemetery beautiful and fascinating, but so are the stories of the architects who rest here. Join us on Wednesday, June 7, at 7:00 p.m., for an online presentation about the Architects of Bellefontaine Cemetery.
Architecture is the soul of a city, while skylines often are the signature. This presentation will begin with early St. Louis architect George I. Barnett, who made a significant impact on the early history of St. Louis, and then move through time to cover William Sylvester Eames, Isaac Taylor, and others who impacted both the buildings and very fabric of St. Louis.
Reservations are required, so please sign up today! Our Zoom video presentations are free. However, donations to the Friends of Bellefontaine Cemetery are gratefully accepted.
