Cathleen’s Walk

April 5, 2023 @ 9:00 am 11:00 am

Cathleen’s Walk

The adventure begins with a drive to the William Clark Plot.  Walking to the ideal way to observe the cemetery.  It is easy to view monuments and take in the scenic view.  After checking out William Clark’s family plot, we will visit the graves of three Civil War participants and an African American doctor who changed health care in St. Louis.  Down the road, there are two suffragists.  Across the street is the Hempstead family plot which is the oldest in the cemetery.  Hidden under some trees, we’ll discover a statue of a seven year old bot looking dapper in his knickers and well as an iron cross revealing the last name of Chouteau.  By telling their stories and visiting their graves, I hope to keep their memories alive.
