Weird Column, Cemetery Row, St. Charles Rock Road

    In which cemetery is this located? It is certainly intriguing. The column looks like it has steel or iron segments in the photo - true?

  2. I'm pretty sure it was in Valhalla Cemetery.

    Yup - Valhalla it is.
    I found it on Bing Birdseye!
    It's in the SWST corner of the cemetery and easy to spot - it casts a long shadow.
    The name on the column is "Chapman."
    The cemetery's address is 7600 St. Charles Rock Road, 63133.
    Valhalla only goes back to 1911, so it is "more recent" than other memorials.
