The Missouri Veterans Cemetery at Bloomfield conducted its first interment on September 29, 2003. The cemetery has a capacity of 27,000 gravesites. A shelter holds 800 niches for the interment of cremated remains.
The cemetery is located on 65 acres of the historically significant and scenic Crowley’s Ridge, in the bootheel of Missouri.
A small lake, which contains a lit fountain, is encircled by a walking path. Once an hour, a random song is heard from the carillon tower. Benches are located throughout the grounds.
Facilities include an administration building, with a reception area and public restrooms. An enclosed and heated committal shelter is used for interment services.
The cemetery shares a common entry way with the historical Stars and Stripes Military Newspaper Museum.
