Cemetery notes and/or description:
Mount Mora Cemetery, established in 1851, is the oldest operating cemetery in Saint Joseph, Missouri. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is an interpretive site of The St. Joseph Museums, Inc. Mount Mora was once the most fashionable burial place for many of St. Joseph’s wealthy and powerful citizens. The boom years of the post Civil War period, known as St. Joseph’s “Golden Age,” gave rise to the building of some of the finest residential architecture in the Midwest, and to some of the finest tomb architecture as well.
