We went to find Daniel Boone, which we did locate. There are signs to guide you towards the gravesite. We ended up seeing so much more. A beautiful view of the Capital Building and river. I find it fascinating to see the names and dates on the headstones. The oldest one we came across was buried in 1873. There is... More

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...

Have visited the cemetery several times over the last year. Now have returned to share with my adult daughter and her husband. Learning so much about Daniel Boone from the monument at his grave site. Never would have believed that he lived into his 80's was remarkable. Just walking the property seeing all the family plots and comments on grave... More

One of my favorite places around Frankfort! The view of our capitol from Daniel Boone's grave is spectacular! It's a great place for photos and stretching your legs. The trees are gorgeous year round and lots of them are labeled for identification. Highly recommend for families with young children, couples and solos. And don't be surprised if you run into...

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.
