Best Cemetery 

Bellefontaine Cemetery

Established in 1849, the Bellefontaine Cemetery remains one of the most scenic resting places in the country. Lush and expansive, this 314-acre cemetery was built during a time when St. Louis lacked a proper-sized burial plot for an exponentially growing city. Featuring rolling green hills embellished by ornate headstones, the cemetery lacks any sort of eerie quality and instead offers tranquility. Perfect for a midday stroll, Bellefontaine is beautiful in all seasons, most notably in autumn when a sea of golden brown leaves blow in the wind. As a final resting place for the great citizens of St. Louis, Bellefontaine also boasts such big names as literary heroes William S. Burroughs and Kate Chopin.
