Seems strange to say that a cemetary is one of my favorite places, but this one is loaded with history and beauty. My husband and I walk here almost 3-4 times per week. Never gets boring. Absolutely beautiful. My favorite section is the older section. Make sure to pick up a map and see all the history here!

Cedar Hill Cemetery is a lovely park with a world wide variety of plants and trees that just happens to also be a cemetery. The monuments are works of art in the older section of the park. I've collected pine cones while my children cycle on the paths. A beautiful place on the outskirts of the busy city.

Cedar Hill Cemetery is one of America's oldest. It is a wonderful place that has very beautiful scenery. A lot of history and the staff is one of the best and very helpful. A must see for history buffs.

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
