St. Louis Mayors at Bellefontaine Cemetery
The mayor of St. Louis is the chief executive officer of St. Louis city government. Forty-seven people have held the office, four of whom—William Carr Lane, John Fletcher Darby, John Wimer, and John How—served non-consecutive terms.
Of these 47 mayors, 21 have been laid to rest at Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum. Some held other political offices within our state and others fulfilled duties in other territories, but almost all had essential roles outside of politics that aided in the development of our city, region, and state. These stories all intertwine to form a rich background for St. Louis’s growth into the city it is today.
