Dr. Franz Arzt Family Plot, Bellefontaine Cemetery

I thought I would swing by Bellefontaine Cemetery and check out Dr. Franz Arzt’s grave. Like many famous members of St. Louis society buried there, he purchased a family plot, so many other members of family are buried with him.

Of course, his house is being renovated in Soulard, which I’ve written about at St. Louis Magazine. I can’t wait to see it complete.

Please join me Wednesday, March 4, 2020 at 7:00 PM at the Missouri History Museum for my lecture on my latest research into Adam Lemp’s development of the cave property on Cherokee Street in the early 1860s, with new discoveries from historic maps, business contracts and examination of the lagering cellars under the brewery. Admission is free.
