“Wonderful walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Simply beautiful place to walk for as long as you want, through lovely hills, ponds, historic structures and of course the historical markers. Just find an easy way to remember where you left your car! This place is huge. Just love it.

“An amazing place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

This cemetery contains over a thousand non-native species laid out along lakes and fountains in hill setting. Some civil war notables are buried here, including Fighting Joe Hooker and Salmon P. Chase, Lincoln's Secretary of the Treasury and later Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Competition among Cincinnati families have left some amazing monuments. If you are looking for specific monuments as we were, you can have a difficult time, but this seems to the case with all the cemeteries we visit.

“A Beautiful and Peaceful Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Living in Cinti my whole life I've heard of Spring Grove Cemetery but never went until last year. I thought it odd to visit a cemetery without any relatives there. However, this was an absolute beautiful place. We were able to take some beautiful photos and I even saw a family taking some first communion photos with their daughter. Beautiful walking grounds and tons of history of prominient Cincinnatians. I highly recommend this be a stop in Cincinnati!

“Historic Cemetery and Arboretum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

IF you are interested in history and love trees and plantings this is your place. Some of the great Civil War Generals are buried in Spring Grove Cemetery as well as local luminaries. By going to the visitors center when you enter the cemetery off of Spring Grove Ave. they will be happy to give you maps and information about this historic place. There are also several races/ walks which happen on weekends for charity so DO check online to see if one of these is happening or you will be sharing the peace of this place with several hundred people.

“History and Beauty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Spring Grove Cemetery is a very large cemetery that is full of history and is beautifully landscaped. Among the people resting here are Jesse and Hannah Grant, the parents of President Ulysses S. Grant, Salmon P. Chase who served as Treasury Secretary under Abraham Lincoln and later the 6th Chief Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court. Also resting here is New York Yankee Manager Miller Huggins. The cemetery has miles and miles of paved roads that is popular with the area residents who use them for daily walks. Beautifully landscaped and the thousands of ornate monuments make this a unique Cincinnati Attraction.
