Established in 1851, Mount Mora is the oldest operating cemetery in St. Joseph. 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 country’s finest architectural tombs.

Mausoleum Row, near the main gate, reads like a who's who of St. Joseph's economic and social elite, vying against one another to build magnificent mausoleums.

Three Missouri governors are buried at Mount Mora: Robert M. Stewart, Willard P. Hall, and Silas Woodson. Also, Gen. M. Jeff Thompson, known as the Swamp Fox of the Confederacy, is buried there.
