Annual Special Event
Déjà Vu Spirit Reunion
Sainte Genevieve, Missouri
PROBABLE EVENT - DETAILS TBA
Memorial Cemetery at Fifth and Merchant Streets,
Saturday, October 27, 2018
pm - 8 pm
Would you like to hear the
story of a US Senator who has been buried three different times? A
Civil War colonel who died at the battle of Shiloh? Meet up with a
modern day spirit of Missouri’s first US Representative? Or one
portraying the well-to-do or the not so well- to-do from Ste.
Genevieve’s history before 1880?
Visitors will experience these stories and more as the Foundation
for Restoration of Ste. Genevieve hosts its annual “Déjà vu Spirit
Reunion”. The cemetery, established in 1787, includes the tombs and
grave markers of the area’s earliest French Pioneers, other European
emigrants, African American slaves and freemen, Native Americans and
a mass grave for victims of a steamboat explosion. This family
friendly living history program provides visitors with an intimate
look into the lifestyles and happenings in Missouri’s oldest town
during the late 18th and 19th centuries. Tour the cemetery via
lantern light and chat “face to face” with spirits clad in
traditional dress and enjoy a hauntingly good time.
This event is presented by
The Foundation for Restoration of Ste. Genevieve, Inc. and benefits
the Foundation's Memorial Cemetery restoration efforts.
