- Children's Monument in Calvary Cemetery, St. Louis, Missouri
Yes! Calvary and Bellfonatine are some of the most spectacular
cemeteries we have ever visited. And they are right across the
street from one another, so, visiting both is easy! Be prepared to
spend a lot of time enjoying all the beauty in these places!
The monument you are referring to is the Sarpy monument. Please
visit http://www.bellamorte.net/Calvary_STL_MO.html to read more.
If you click on the gallery, you'll see two photos of the monument
in question. We have more and would be happy to share them with
anyone who may be interested!

All the Best,
