We did not know what to expect when visiting Lexington Cemetery. We had done some research as to who was buried there and some of the most notable people of influence who were here. One of the main stories that intrigued me was of King Solomon and I was very interested in his grave after reading the story of him. Another grace which piqued my curiosity was Henry Clay who had a failed run at being President of the US and the cousin of Cassius Clay the emancipationist and state representative.
At the front gates they have a beautiful little office building which one can utilize to find any grave they want and also sells books and offers free pamphlets highlighting some points of interest and a walking tour of the cemetery.
Using the information we had gained from the front desk we set out to find what we had come for and even a few extra which we had learned from the office staff. We found all the grave sites we were looking for except for one grave the name of who escapes me now.
The walk was beautiful and you never had to walk to far to find a grave of interest even though the cemetery itself is huge.
We also found some other people who tour cemeteries taking photos and taking in the history which was very nice and we were able to share what we had seen.
Overall, the experience was beautiful and every respect was adhered to by the staff and visitors.
