Beautiful resting place for the dead!! Quite serene overlooking the Kentucky River. The resting place of the great pioneer Daniel Boone.. Very interesting headstones too with entertaining stories of the owners.

Be prepared to walk up a steep hill to the top of the cemetery if you want to overlook Frankfort and see the Daniel Boone gravesite. You can also be given a golf cart ride to any destination if you request. There are many historical figues buried here including many early political graves. It is a well kept cemetery.

We always take out of town visitors here. You can see graves of Governors, Senators, a Vice Ptesident, and, of course, Daniel Boone. From Boone's grave there is a spectacular view of the State Capitol. There is also a large monument dedicated to Kentucky's veterans.

I love exploring cemeteries and this is right in the heart of the city of Frankfort. Daniel Boone and his wife Rebecca are buried here , and the gravesite is well-marked. Overall, a very nicely maintained cemetery.

Daniel Boones grave is in the Frankfort Cemetery, the cemetery overlooks the river and has a beautiful view of the Capital. This cemetery is one of those places you need to wander at your leisure. We did not have the time I would have liked , but the time I was in the cemetery I saw many historical monuments. It's... More

This is a beautiful cemetery! It is located on rolling hills with winding roads through clusters of grave sites. We were amazed with many of the dates dating back to the Civil War. The many memorials and monuments are grateful tributes. Daniel Boone and his wife, Rebecca, are memorialized here too. We appreciate all who have gone before us.

This cemetery is not to be missed especially for history buffs. It's located near town on a major hill overlooking the city. The grounds are the best maintained I've seen in town cemeteries. But the real treat is the site is the final resting place for American legends like Daniel Boone political leaders governors and military leaders from the Union... More

Nicely maintained cemetery where Daniel and Rebecca Boone are buried (see the story for yourself). Great view of the State Capitol from the Boone gravesite. Well worth a stop.

We visited this cemetery on our way home from Louisville just to see Daniel Boone's memorial. We found it with no problems. The view was gorgeous, and the grave was very well maintained. The entire cemetery was very pretty.

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
