“Nice Cemetery”

This cemetery isn't a 'must-do' in Louisville, but it's a nice place to slow down and relax. The drive through the cemetery is nice and peaceful. Colonel Sander's grave is a neat place to stop and take a photo, but the cemetery's varied and impressive tombstones and monuments are the real treat.

Also, if you have any connection to The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, James P. Boyce, John Broadus, A.T. Robertson, and Basil Manly are buried here.

I stop by Cave Hill for many reasons, but the most frequent is for a moment of solitude and reflection. This historic cemetery and park has been a haven for me and my children who often accompanied me to feed the ducks. This is an oasis in the middle of a bustling city where I can be close to everything, yet as far away from the bustle of a busy life for as long as I wish. The grounds are meticulously kept and artfully designed. My gratitude to the caretakers and groundskeepers for maintaining this glimpse of Paradise! I recommend a trip through the park for anyone seeking solace and a time for reflection.

There is much history to see at this cemetery. Not only will you see Col. Sanders grave, but this is the second largest military cemetery to Arlington. It is easy to get lost driving around and viewing the beautiful headstones dating back to the mid 1800s. The property is beautifully kept and well worth a visit on a sunny day.

Wonderful cemetery to visit. Very impressive. You could spend hours looking around. The gentleman at the gate was very helpful in helping to find a certain area I was looking for in the cemetery. I made the mistake of not allowing enough time to really look around. Its easy to get to right off Interstate 64 not far from downtown Louisville. I will definitely be going back sometime soon to see it again.
