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”
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”
Reviewed September 2, 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.
