Consolations of Memory 2019 - Annual Event

Consolations of Memory is a guided cemetery walk of the area surrounding Hotchkiss Chapel. Each year we focus on a different topic that relates to life, death and mourning in the mid 19th Century. During the tour guests will learn about tragic events in St Louis history, funeral and burial practices, how the dead were remembered and the lives of those left behind to mourn the loss. The tour is followed immediately by a funeral reenactment, procession and burial service.

We are hard at work planning this event. Check back here for updates or follow us on Facebook.
