Cave Hill Cemetery

This afternoon I enjoyed a fascinating tour of Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville. This cemetery was established in the 1840s and enjoyed its greatest popularity after the Civil War. Cave Hill is special in that it is an active cemetery still, and has a staff of groundskeepers but also guards and watchmen. There has been relatively little vandalism over the years and one can experience the full effect of a (largely) Victorian park cemetery. Below are a few of the better photos I took, the rest may be found here.
