Cemeteries are more than just burial grounds. They are also documents of the ways we see ourselves and the ways people wanted to be remembered. This illustrated talk will use St. Louis’s Bellefontaine Cemetery as an example of the ways tombstones, mausoleums, and cemetery design reflect the attitudes and values of Gilded Age Missouri.

Presented by Jeffrey Smith, Professor of History, Chair of History & Geography Department, and editor of The Confluence (an interdisciplinary regional studies journal, Lindenwood University, St. Charles, Missouri)

Location : Jefferson County Library Arnold Branch 1701 Missouri State Rd
