This cemetery consists of 41 historic military buildings and is believed to be haunted by a number of ghosts. Built in 1900, Building 1 is said to be haunted by an older Confederate Civil War general who has been spotted at the post commander's office, as well as a man's shadowy ghost who sits at a desk on the second floor. In Building 25, lights are known to come on by themselves and in Building 29, witnesses have reported footsteps, flushing toilets and a voice yelling "Dismissed!" Building 37 is haunted by a hazy apparition and at the Powder Magazine, a ghost sentry has been known to appear.

    Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery is an American military cemetery located in St. Louis County, Missouri, just on the banks of the Mississippi River. The cemetery was established after the American Civil War in an attempt to put together a formal network of military cemeteries. It started as the Jefferson Barracks Military Post Cemetery in 1826 and became a United States National Cemetery in 1866. Medal of Honor recipients: Major Ralph Cheli (1919-1944), for heroism while leading a bombing mission in World War II. Donald D.

Pinckney Henderson on August 19, 1943. Mass grave for 123 of the 139 victims of the Palawan Massacre[2] Remains of 5 crewmen from B-36 Bomber 075 lost on the coast of British Columbia, Canada while conducting a training mission on February 13, 1950 A monument entitled Memorial to the Confederate Dead was placed in Jefferson Barracks on May 1st, 1988[3] It is located in section 66 of the cemetery (Graveyard). Not to be confused with the removed Memorial to the Confederate Dead (St. Louis). It was placed by the Jefferson Barracks Civil War Historical Association, Sons of Confederate Veterans, and the Missouri Society Military Order of the Stars and Bars. The front of the monument features three Confederate flags: the first national flag (seven-star variant of the "Stars and Bars"), the Confederate Battle Flag, and the last national flag ("Blood-Stained Banner"). Under the flags is a quote by Berry Benson[4] To the Confederate Dead 1861-1865 Who knows but it may be given to us, after this life, to meet again in the old quarters, to play chess and draughts, to get up soon to answer the morning roll call, to fall in at the tap of the drum for drill and dress parade and again to hastily don out war gear while the monotonous patter of the long roll summons to battle? Who knows but again the old flags, ragged and torn, snapping in the wind, may face each other and flutter, pursuing and pursued, while the cries of victory fill a summer day? And after the battle, then the slain and wounded will arise, and all will meet together under the two flags, all sound and well, and there will be talking and laughter and cheers, and all will say: Did it not seem real? Was it not as in the old days?” Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery is a United States Military cemetery, it still remains as an active graveyard for fallen soldiers and deceased veterans. This graveyard has lots of graves of deceased military veterans and soldiers who have served in the US Army, US Navy, US Coast Guard, US Marine Corps and even including the US Air Force.

  • Drury Inn creve coeur A old house that sat on the property

    t night. Double checking making sure they where locked. One night laying in bed my husband heard a loud bang on his dresser and freaked him out. Another time he was listening to the radio and Jesus Christ Superstar was playing. It kept changing stations by itself. He would put it back to Jesus Christ Superstar, it would switch to another station. This was the one and only time that happen. They found out after they moved out. Nobody lived in that house for more then a few months. They use to receive mail for so many different people.All that lived there for short periods and moved out. They did receive mail for Transcendental Meditation headquarters. Which makes you question the activity there.
