Cruising through a cemetery on a beautiful spring evening may not be considered entertaining by most, but if you want to see beautiful sculptures and see some of the history of the flood, this place has it all. I marvel at the older monuments, their detail and how much work and talent it took to make them. Especially the older... More

A lot of my family (ancestors) are buried in Grandview Cemetary, so I went there one day to see if they had a map of the graves or some way to find the deceased. Not only did they have a map, but they have a great website that is searchable by names, and the results tell you the section and... More

Beautifully kept, large cemetery. Thanks to their online maps and registry I was able to find all of the plots for the branches of my family. I was able to honor the memory of my relatives, which meant a lot to me.

For anyone that likes to stroll through cemeteries reading the headstones and marveling at the dates, this is a one of a kind experience. Within the cemetery are buried the remains of those found after the 1889 flood that were not able to be identified. The cemetery is a few blocks from the inclined plane, so it is easy to... More

This is a very large cemetery so it is very easy to get lost. Answers to No's of grave sites and family names can be answered by the office staff which are very helpful.

This is a very somber place where you can see the graves of the unknown and the graves of entire families that died during the great flood. Go to the Visitor's Center first so you can appreciate all the more what took place that caused so many people to perish in a few short hours. Recommend you take the road... More
