The cemetery is a park filled with an abundance of plants and trees worth the visit. For history buffs, the cemetery is the final resting place of the Who's Who of Connecticut. The grave markers are beautiful works of art. A worthwhile trip especially during the Fall for leaf peepers. Don't miss this gem.

What a lovely place. The staff was sensitive and kind, too. The trees are mature and the autumn colors were popping. The grounds are well kept. If I lived closer, I think I would jog through here because of it's serene atmosphere.

We have lived in the Hartford area for over 50 years and never visited this place where many of CT's rich and famous are buried. Recently they celebrated their 150 year anniversary with an event called "Beyond the Gates". It was a fascinating day with which included the Governor's Foot Guard Band and many other performers. They do have other... More

Visiting our passed family here is always special in this historic cemetery. Whether you have a connection here or not, it is a wonderful place to visit. Stop by the office too. The people there are very helpful. Lastly, make a donation to keep this place around and beautiful.

Though I do go there more than once a year,it's always special when my brother is there too.We were very blessed to be raised by the best & just driving past the rich & famous on the way there always brings to my mind that we all end up in the same place...Heaven.

The Cedar Hill Cemetery is a garden cemetery so it is a very nice place to walk around and/or learn about the famous people buried there. Such names as Katharine Hepburn, J.P. Morgan, Thomas Gallaudet, and Horace Wells are buried there. They offer a free audio tour via the cell phone, which is nice. On a day with good weather,... More

This cemetery is beautifully appointed and is a wonderful place to walk and see some amazing sculpture. If you're into historical places, there are a number of famous and semi-famous people buried here -- Katharine Hepburn for example. The Cedar Hill Cemetery Foundation has a great self-guide brochure/map. Bring a camera.

The cemetery can be reached by city transit, but check service times before heading out. Located close to lovely Trinity College campus. This is a large cemetery, so be prepared for some walking. Maps and visitor information is located at the front entrance. We were paying respects to Ms Katherine Hepburn, who is buried in a family plot marked with... More

Very nice cemetery to be buried in when talking cemeteries. They keep the place looking very nice. I've attended several funerals where the burial plots have been in Cedar Hill Cemetery.
