“Great scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Just a gem inside downtown Hartford, for a stroll, a jog. Tons of history and you'll wish you lived nearby.

“Lots of stories here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

J.P. Morgan, Joseph Twichell, Samuel Colt, Katherine Hepburn, Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet are some of the more famous residents of this wonderful example of a Victorian Cemetery. Beautiful, well-maintained grounds and inspirational monuments make it a wonderful place to spend a morning, an afternoon, or a day, And you can still buy a plot!

“Tranquil beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

I have never considered visiting a cemetery other than paying homage to a loved one so I was a little apprehensive. But Cedar Hill encourages visitors. They provide a map of famous people's graves as well as a map of the many type of trees that grow on their grounds. It was very tranquil and quiet. A great place to reflect and admire the beautiful artistry of the headstones.

This is a beautifully landscaped cemetery and a great place to go for a nice walk. . There are occasionally staff led walks here which are very interesting.
