Walnut Grove Cemetery, Boonville Missouri…


I have been so excited to share this post with you. A few days ago I was on my way back home from a Kansas City trip and I decided to take one of the Boonville exits off of Interstate 70. I’ve driven past the area so many times over the years, and except for a nighttime detour from construction on the highway a while back, I’d never really toured the historical river town. This time around I’d take my time and look for a cemetery. It took a while, but I found one… and what I find it was! This cemetery just may have made its way to my top two or three favorite cemeteries. I hope to visit again this fall to capture the colors and the trees at their most beautiful. As you’ll see from the photos, someone has been doing a wonderful job taking care of, protecting, and preserving this beautiful park-like cemetery. Kudos to them. Please enjoy this tour through Walnut Grove Cemetery in Boonville, Missouri.

    All the cemetary pictures are awesome. I grew up in Lexington. Totally forgot about the one by the country club. I remember the Catholic one in Lexington. Had some friends that lived by there back when I was in grade school. I always thought it was spooky. But now I appreciate the history and wonder about their “stories”. Thanks for posting. Makes me miss my hometown…

    Really nice camera work, Patrick – what a gorgeous graveyard. Can’t wait to see the autumn set.

      Well I’m SO not a photographer, but I feel like these iPhones are so great that it’s like cheating. 🙂 I’m starting to kind of develop a style I guess… I enjoy it. And for some reason a cemetery (except for the bugs and spiders) comforts me. It’s like a park. 🙂

    Nice cemetery…a big one! It will be stunning come Fall. Someone sure got serious with that weedeater, maybe I should have them come plow me up a couple rows 😉

  • Patrick

    HAAAA! That’s funny. Yeah it was pretty well groomed all over. I wouldn’t know what to do with a weedeater if someone paid me. 🙂
