Re: Washington Park Cemetery-St. Louis
In Response To: Washington Park Cemetery-St. Louis ()
The new owner is a Mr. Kevin Bailey. I believe he purchased the cemetery for two dollars...already he has been cited for the bad state of the cemetery...
Mr. Kuper, before he died, paid about $3600 per month to have the sections along McDonnell and Natural Bridge trimmed regularly (Sections 1, 9, 5, part of 8 and part of 10).
Since the property was in probate for so long, much of it is now so overgrown that one can barely get a car through.
With the upcoming winter, much of the vegetation will die back...A winter clean-up may be the way to go....
The last time I visited the property was in early November, 2009.
