Rural Cemetery Movement

Join us for our April 19, 2018 HISTORY TALKS when Dr. Jeffrey Smith of Lindenwood University talks about the Rural Cemetery Movement and how St. Charles fits into this paradigm. “Rural” cemeteries broke conventional notions of burials and graveyards and showed a new way for people to mourn surrounded by the beauty of a landscaped cemetery. Program is sponsored by the Friends of Missouri’s First State Capitol and is on the Third Thursday of each month at 7pm at the Missouri First State Capitol State Historic Site at 200 S. Main, St. Charles, MO 63301. Program is free to the public.
