Trolley Tour: 1904 World’s Fair

June 22, 8:00 am TO 5:00 pm | Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum | $5

This two-hour Trolley Tour will focus on those who made the Grandest of Fairs possible in St. Louis.  From David R. Francis to Isaac Taylor, this tour will highlight the people who helped shape the event that took place in Forest Park from April 30 through December 1, 1904.

 

20 Million visitors attended the Louisiana Purchase Exposition.  Additionally, some of those attendees traveled to Bellefontaine Cemetery to pay homage to a person directly connected to the new American Territory acquired in 1803!

 

Some walking will take place as we exit the trolley to explore the grounds.  Wear comfortable footwear and be ready for sun and insects.

 

Our trolley tours are from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m.
