Jewell Cemetery State Historic Site

South Providence Road

The hustle and bustle of nearby Providence Road in Columbia belie the peace and serenity of Jewell Cemetery State Historic Site. The shady tree-filled cemetery contains the grave of Missouri's 22nd governor, Charles Hardin, along with descendents of George Jewell. The most well known member of the Jewell family buried in the cemetery, William Jewell, died while establishing a college in Liberty, Mo., that bears his name.

Signs say open dawn to dusk and there is a plaque just inside the gate, but it is bolted shut and not accessible. Looks like a cool little cemetery with some interesting history, but you can't get close enough to make it worth stopping.
