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.

Lots of old headstones. Pretty view of the capitol. Nice to see Daniel & Rebecca Boone gravesite. A recent addition - Memorial to the unborn. Lots of history.

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.

Neat to see Daniel & Rebecca Boone's burial site, and also the Memorial to the Unborn. Very pro-life which was cool!

Was a nice place to visit. It was a very pretty site to stand at D. Boone's gravesite in the sunshine and look out over the river and see the capital building. Will visit again for the peaceful feeling of this place. Also amazed to see the memorial for the unborn--they are all to often forgotten about.

A very well manicured cemetery. Lots of historic graves and if you look hard enough you will find Daniel Boone's grave.

The cemetery sits high on the hill overlooking the city, the Kentucky river and the capital building. Many former governors and public figured are interred here as well as our most famous character...Daniel Boone and his wife Rebecca. The famous artist Paul Sawyer is resting just a short distance away. The DAR area hold the oldest graves I have located... More

I live in Frankfort and love to walk here. Lots of lovely old trees. Overlook of downtown Frankfort, the Capitol, and the Kentucky River.
