I found this to be one of the most beautiful cemeteries I have ever visited. The first place you should stop once you get into the cemeterey is the Administration Office. They are my idea of what Southern Hospitality is all about. They will almost lead you by the hand to see all the sites in this cemetery.
The Administration Building is beautiful and is hidden behind those beautiful trees.
Speaking of trees, You will see many species of trees as you make your way through the cemetery.
Be sure to stop by Colonel Harland Sanders ... you remember him. He used to own Kentucky Fried Chicken Restaurants.
George Rogers Clark ... The Founder o Louisville, Washington Of The West. Is also now buried here.
If you are interested in the Civil War, there are many Grave Sites to try to find.. Plus, there are other war veterans buried here from other wars. All the square cement posts you see are graves of unknown soldiers. Men and women who died to give us the freedom we hold so dear to us.
See this brick wall? It has like barbed wire or something across the top. We aren't sure why it is there, but we are thinking it is to keep grave robbers out. Does anyone out there know why it is there??
There is so much to see here and you need to take your time. Unfortunately, we didn't have as much time as I would of liked to have here.
