Did you know that in Minnesota a person who sells cemetery plots needs a real estate license? I don’t sell cemetery plots and wrote this post 10 years ago. I found it while I was looking for something else.
We have some beautiful old cemeteries here in St. Paul. I guess I have always had a fascination with them because of they show the history of the city. Calvery Cemetery, located on Front Street in St. Paul is the oldest of the Catholic cemeteries. It was dedicated by Bishop Cretin in 1856, the oldest of The Catholic Cemeteries. Buried almost 101,000 persons since 1856, still currently averaging 290 burials per year. It is filled with beautiful monuments and old Oak trees. It is huge and very easy to get lost in.
Oakland Cemetary founded in 1853 is a non-denominational cemetery. It is smaller the Calvary and there are a lot of civil war veterans and politicians buried in it. The oak trees are amazing, as are the monuments.
