“Take a stroll through history in peaceful setting”
Reviewed December 13, 2011

With its history dating back to 1844, Spring Grove cemetery and arboretum is the second largest cemetery in the United States. I always have to think back to the days when it was acceptable and common to lay down a blanket and have a picnic. Beautiful architecture throughout, plus many famous Cincinnatians and war heroes.

“Nice, big old cemetary. Fun to explore history and hike.”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

Many of the founding fathers\daughters are buried in the cemetary.. It is a fun place to walk and explore on a warm summer day. There is also many varied tree and plant collections within the cemetary.
