[ARCHIVED] Stories in Stone

Stories in Stone exhibit

Now displayed at the Buchanan County Courthouse.  
Stories in Stone is five double-sided panels highlighting cemeteries around the entirety of Buchanan County.  From the first county seat in Sparta, MO, with the cemetery of the same name, to the beloved Mount Mora in the city proper…And the obscure Bowen cemetery out in a farm field, to the local legend of the Liliger Family Cemetery at Sunbridge Hills Conservation area.  This exhibit portrays 18 different cemeteries, the fascinating people interned there, and much more. From a Revolutionary War veteran to our city’s founding father, Pony Express riders, and the victim of St. Joseph’s only recorded lynching, visitors can learn about the prosperous and the impoverished, to the infamous and those long since forgotten.  Stories in Stone has many stories to tell.
