There is a beautiful gate house and caretaker’s house right on the southeast corner, along what was originally Bellefontaine Road, but now renamed Broadway in the city (the road still exists in North County).

There is another, newer gatehouse to the north, also along Broadway. When the orientation of the cemetery turned westward to West Florissant Avenue, these gates were closed.
