Established by an act of the Missouri General Assembly in 1849, Lexington's Machpelah Cemetery is one of Missouri’s oldest corporations in continuous existence.

Among those buried here are victims of the 1852 Saluda steamboat explosion; one of the founders of the Pony Express; and Civil War soldiers killed in the 1861 Battle of Lexington. Fascinating funerary monuments and ironwork from a local foundry.

A guide is available from the Lexington Tourism Bureau.
