“A special and unique destination in Cincinnati”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

We love coming to Spring Grove. There is much to love about this place. It is steeped in history. You can walk through many decades of Cincinnati and American history by looking at the tombstones and getting tour information from the extremely helpful staff at the visitor's center. Makes one appreciate the role this city has played in the evolution of the United States. And of course there is the physical beauty of the place. It is a huge and sprawling cemetery with many kinds of plants and trees. My grandparents - both of whom were naturalists and are buried here - used to come and catalogue both the trees and plants they observed as well as the turtles in the lakes on the property. Do yourself a favor and take an afternoon to walk and drive through Spring Grove. You will appreciate a different side of Cincinnati.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

A beautiful place. If you have to die, this is a nice alternative! It was such a beautiful place that it would be nice to hike there. We had a picnic near a families plot.

“Superb history and a great walk.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Spring Grove Cemetery is truly beautiful and full of history. Although my wife and I got a bit lost exploring using a guidebook, it was a wonderful morning full of quiet and reflection.

“Really not sure on why this is so highly rated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We really didn't quite understand why this place was so highly rated, especially when there are some genuinely great attractions in Cincinatti like the Freedom Museum. It was a cemetery with some pleasant grounds but really that's about it. It was March and very cold so perhaps it would be nicer in summer.
