“Incredible Place.”
Review of Cave Hill Cemetery

Cave Hill Cemetery

Reviewed 5 August 2012

Cave Hill is a National Cemetery and arboretum containing flora not found anywhere else in Kentucky and several of the largest of their kind trees in the state including a Caucasian Wingnut tree with a circunference of twenty one and a half feet. It is the final resting place for many luminaries in Louisville history including General George Rogers Clark and Colonel Harland Sanders (the founder of KFC). I've spent many hours wandering the grounds and probably still haven't seen it all.

Cave Hill is more than a cemetery; it is a botanical garden and a historical site. Tom Owen conducts historical walking tours that are well worth the time and modest fee. This is a great place to take a Sunday walk. If your child has a botany project, this is the place to go because every tree is labeled with the scientific name and the common name. There is even a large pond in the middle of the park with ducks, geese , and swans. This is also a great spot for a picnic.

This is a really beautiful historic cemetery. My in laws have just been able to purchase a plot for themselves in one of the really old sections because some family needed more space than they could have in that section, so we went to see. Absolutely lovely and peaceful. Wish I'd known about the geocaching. Would have enjoyed finding one here. Loved this place.

I have to admit that I came here lured by the 6 Earthcaches and a Virtual here. But it was a lovely place to visit while in Louisville. Lots of history and geological points to find.

This by far is a must for those that can appreciate those that served our country with the oldest civil war burials and over 5500 from all wars. If your a KFC fan, follow the yellow line to see Colonel Sanders burial/headstone. An easy one hour drive without seeing it all.
