“A great place to end up...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

Cave Hill Cemetery is one of the most beautiful and serene spots in Louisville. It is the final home of many well known people, including Colonel Harland Sanders of Ky. Fried Chicken. There are many incredible trees in the cemetery, and most are marked with an identifying tag. A beautiful place to pay your respects, and/or play with the ducks on the pond!

“Beautiful and historic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2012

I love cemeteries for their history. This is a particularly large and beautiful one. Rolling hills and mature landscaping. Lots of OLD headstones. Very interesting place. A nice place for a run, walk or drive.

“So interesting!”

Although visiting a cemetery sounds pretty odd, this is one of the most interesting places I've been. Some famous folks buried there, amazing memorials...worth the visit!

Stop by the office first to get a map it will show you where famous people are laid to rest.

“Beautiful and Serene Quiet Green Space...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2012

For a relaxing and interesting walk or slow drive, visit Cave Hill. A highlight is the ducks and geese you can feed (bring something) at the lake. Very interesting grave sites of famous and not famous but very much loved people. Winding paved roads and small interesting hills and turns. Peaceful and quiet.
