After Arlington National, Spring Grove Cemetery is the largest cemetery in the country. The statuary and a lot of the family crypts are works of art. There are some famous families buried here. The stained glass windows in the buildings are fantastic. Plan your visit on a sunny day for the most spectacular effects. You'll need a map to get... More

Spring Grove Cemetery is probably one of the most peaceful and strangely uplifting places I've visited. If you can arrange to take one of the tours offered, by all means do so... the tour leaders are very knowledgeable and will share the cemetery's history, notable pieces of art and stories about various "residents". Each May, Gypsies visit the cemetery to... More

I always call Spring Grove Cemetery a "museum without walls." Each historical headstone is a work of art. The gardens are varied and gorgeous with lakes and bridges. A lovely place to pay respect and enjoy a nice walk.

Visited this cemetery because it is very peaceful and the grounds are beautiful. This is a very large cemetery and is beautiful in the spring when trees/plants are in bloom. Happened across the SpongeBob grave markers, in the newer part, which seemed a little out of place, but very memorable.

One wouldn't expect to find such a jewel in/near the city. It's on the National Historic Society's list and is truly a must see. It's a very peaceful, quiet place to walk through nature. Plenty of areas to reflect on the loved ones here or just to take time to reflect on yourself. Many famous people are buried here and... More

This is a beautiful place for a quiet walk; the springtime is especially lovely with everything in bloom. Filled with the graves of some of Cincinnati's most prominent people it has beautiful sculpture and gravestones.

If you have relatives who lived and died in Cincinnati this is the place to begin your genealogy research. Their records are all digitized and available for FREE online. After you know who is buried here, come visit and walk in the past. It is beautiful, quiet, and very large...one of the biggest in the United States.

The staff at the Visitor Center-- so warm, friendly and helpful. We were given maps and other information about the cemetery. After we found some sites, we were stymied as to another site we were searching for. I called down to the Visitor Center for assistance and they sent someone right up to guide us to our site. Everyone was... More
