Mount Lebanon Cemetery

I often learn interesting things from my readers, and recently one visitor to my site informed me that the large potter’s field near the St. Louis Insane Asylum was dug up in the 1950’s and moved out to Mount Lebanon Cemetery, a medium sized cemetery across from Northwest Plaza and surrounded by busy roads and interstates. Supposedly there is a monument, but I couldn’t find it; I did find this interesting monument based on two paintings by Albrecht Drer.

There are a couple of other large monuments, but they don’t have any significance to the potter’s field in St. Louis.

The cemetery has a strong interest in re-carving tree trunks into figures (not pictured).
