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.

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.
