This is well worth a stroll. It is a large cemetary with a large variety of trees and plants. It probably has an example of every tree and bush that can be grown in the area.

Although it would be much lovelier in the spring or fall my ride through this beautiful cemetery was still picturesque. Perhaps there aren’t as many gorgeous crypts as others I have visited though there is a nice sense of history here. For those who are...More

This beautiful Arboretum is also a lesson in Cincinnati history and the evolution of artist grave markers and monuments. Countless resting places for historical Cincinnati figures are found amoung the lesser known but equally interesting headstones and mosuleaums found at this lovely cemetery. Of petucular...More

I am a Quaker. There is a Quaker section. We are considering being there at our death. I have toured the entire Cemetery and Arboretum many times. Most interesting historically too.

The older part of the cemetery has many monuments and mausoleums, and is very historical. The newer part has less of that. We visited in December, but will return in the Spring to enjoy the arboretum. It is worth a visit occasionally.
