Oak Grove Cemetery

 
 

Beautiful Oak Grove Cemetery, established in the mid 1880's is located among rolling hills in the north west corner of Saint Louis. Dotted with century-old majestic oak, maple and flowering spirea, the cemetery is a great place to visit for a few moments of peace and reflection. Veteran's markers from as early as the Civil War are found throughout the grounds. The older sections of the grounds has many ornate grave markers reflecting the skill and artistry of past generations of sculptures.

Preparations are ongoing to complete water lines, roads, and plotting to open the east lawn for burials. Addition of these four acres will bring the total developed area to about 40 acres of the approximately 55 owned by Saint Louis.

Yearly Memorial Day services including a parade through town, a tribute to sailors lost at sea and twenty-one gun salute ends with a Veterans service at the Veterans Hill section of Oak Grove Cemetery. The public as well as all veterans are welcome to attend.
