Daniel Boone's grave; lovely view of State Capital; very interesting monument to soldiers... Well-kept cemetery is a great place to just get away... Worth one's time... Saw one person sitting on a wall looking down at city center while reading a book and eating lunch... Wish I had thought of that...

If you like history in cemeteries, this is an interesting place. If not...don't bother. Had some beautiful old stones and there's an outstanding view from Daniel Boone's stone overlooking the Tennessee River and the town beyond.

It's beautiful, peaceful and quiet. It has beautiful overviews of Frankfort, and you can learn a lot from reading gravestones about history and about people.

We drove through because of Daniel Boone and heard the best view to see the Capitol building is from the cemetery. Interesting monuments and trees. We always feel relaxed taking in the views at a cemetery.

Daniel Boone's grave was very exciting to see, especially seeing the best view of Frankfort. I would recommend to everyone to at least stop by and see it.

This short stop at Daniel and Rebecca Boone's grave had a magnificent view across the Kentucky River to the State Capitol Building. Cool, quiet and shady, a calm interval.
