This has to be one of the most beautiful, well kept cemeteries in the country. Unfortunately, I have had to bury two of my children there. Having such a beautiful setting for their monuments makes my regular visits even more pleasant. My parents are also buried close by.

i cant imagine being laid to rest in a more serene place. the mature trees make such an impact. also love the idea of perennial flowers and shrubs as grave decoration instead off wasteful cut flowers.

By accident we discovered this beautiful resting place for over 31,000 gravesites. This is beautiful and what drew us into the setting was a huge monument to Henry Clay that is visible from the highway. I had to find it and I was successful in locating the gravesite which is a testament to what this great statesman meant to this beautiful state. Had we known some of the other famous people who are buried in this beautiful cemetery we may have meandered through what seemed like hundreds of streets and paths. This is definitely one of the most beautiful cemeteries ever. We were blessed to see many of the tributes and hope we can go back again one day.

This is a beautiful setting for a cemetery but we agree with others, without a map, you would wander for days. We spent about 20 minutes just driving through and admiring the pristine, park like setting.

We visited in early April, perhaps a bit too early to experience the full effect of spring in bloom. I agree with others, a map of the historical remains would be very helpful. As it was we simply drove thru as best we could. Hope to visit again when the weather is nicer and we can explore all day!
