Many of the historians who built and worked Louisville are buried here. Be sure to ask at the gate for the driving tour and markers of the great Louisvillians and princesses.

Spent the afternoon driving/walking a bit looking at and reading the markers. The older headstones were more detailed than the modern ones. Ali and Colonel Sanders are buried here. Large Military section.

As fun as it gets riding around a cemetery. We were driving around while an actual burial was taking place. So I would recommend to be respectful when driving and not play any loud music. It is better to drive then walk around because it...More
