Located on the 314 acres of Bellefontaine Cemetery are over 100 Mausoleums. As St. Louisans had grand homes throughout the city, they also had grand mausoleums on the grounds of Bellefontaine. This tour focuses on the history, iconography, and architecture of these grand structures. Entrance into a few of these mausoleums has been granted by the families. Explore these ‘Forever Homes’ with two guides who will share stories of the family and the structures.
