To let this beautiful cemetery be in such disrepair. It seems like scout groups, churches, Rotarians, Kiwanis etc couldn't help with cleaning the grave markers. Too much moss on tons of graves eating away the stones. Historical and not taking care of it.

Cave Hill Cemetery is located near Phoenix Hill, Bardstown Road and Cherokee Park. The grounds are a peaceful place to visit, and the pond area is a nice area for a quiet stop. There are also some very interesting headstones in the cemetery.

We were hoping to see some of the graves of the important people buried here, but there were no maps available at the entrance way. We were able to see the confederate cemetery which was interesting.

If you like trees and sculpture (obelisks and angels) and a peaceful place to stretch your legs, this is a lovely cemetery park. I believe it's 294 acres.

It is definitely worth visiting...the most beautiful cemetery I've ever seen. My nephew is laid to rest there.
