Cemetery Scavenger Hunt

This is an online scavenger hunt that you can play by following our posts on Facebook or Instagram. Every Sunday from September 1 to October 27, 2019 we’ll be posting a photo clue. To play along all you have to do is post a photo to Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #msstlcsh. The only requirement is that the photo was taken in a cemetery!

It’s a great way to learn about cemetery history and a reason to get out and visit your local historical cemeteries! Check back here on September 1st for the first clue.

Consolations of Memory

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.

This is an annual event. Check back here for updates or follow us on Facebook.
