|THE HISTORY OF THE UNION CEMETERY OF KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI
|Welcome to Union Cemetery Historical Society's official website. The Union Cemetery Historical Society (UCHS) was founded in 1984 as a 501c3 organization to restore, maintain and preserve the burial records of Kansas City, Missouri's oldest public cemetery, Union Cemetery. Over the years the UCHS has partnered with Kansas City Parks and Recreation to not only preserve cemetery records, but also the cemetery itself.
Founded in 1857, Union Cemetery, located just south of Crown Center and east of the Liberty Memorial, is the final resting place for many of those who founded and developed the towns of Westport and Kansas City. The famous and infamous rest here. Veterans from every war from the Revolution to Vietnam are buried here, including those who fought for both sides during the Civil War. And those who lived, worked, raised families and contributed to making the area a great place to live rest here.
