A stroll through the Somerset Cemetery is both relaxing and informative, even if you don't have family buried there. It's well kept and always looks beautiful - plus you'll be surprised by some the names you'll find on the old tombstones. If you're lucky, you'll...More

This is a beautiful cemetery, especially in the spring. There is a wealth of history literally buried here, Bluegrass musicians, the city's leaders, and everyday people that made Somerset great. Every encounter I have ever had with the staff has been beyond reproach and professional.
