This cemetery is very well maintained, gated, and has a lot of history to it. However, the cemetery does not have very long hours and that is the only bad thing about it.

This is a beautiful cemetery and arboretum. Many unique headstones and monuments. Muhammad Ali and Cl. Sanders are buried here.

Definitely worth a visit - not just for the celebrities buried there (Muhammad Ali and Colonel Sanders) but also for the beauty of the cemetery and the headstones and statues. We highly recommend taking the tours offered by the Cave Hill Foundation.

We loved walking around the beautifully manicured grounds. The further you go back the older the grave markers are, very interesting part of Louisvilles history.
