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.

This cemetery is beautifully kept and well set out. We wanted to see Daniel Boones gravesite. The way to the site is very well marked. It is a very beautiful old cemetery with a a lot of history. It is a very large cemetery and seems to go for miles. As you drive in, pick up a map that is... More

Many famous Kentuckians are laid to rest here. Daniel Boone is one. Governors and statesmen alike share the peaceful view of Frankfort.

Very recently, I visited the Frankfort Cemetery. I was expecting just what this website touts - a beautifully maintained historical resting place. This is not what I found. There were damaged tombstones, and I was absolutely shocked that at the war memorial the flags were tattered and faded. Even more abhorrent in its condition was the D.A.R.'s flag. Worst of... More

East of downtown Frankfort is a beautiful cemetery set on a hill overlooking the city. The drawing card is the tomb of Daniel Boone and his wife Rebecca that is set right on the edge with a magnificent view of both the city and the river. There is a wall on which to sit and enjoy the view as well... More

It's a short drive from downtown Frankfort to this historic cemetery. Once inside the gates, the way to the Boone gravesite is fairly well marked. We enjoyed the short walk from the cemetery road to the Boone monument on the bluff above the river. The monument is attractive with artistic carvings on all four sides. We also enjoyed a stroll...
