You can't possibly see everything in one trip but we tried. Some of the monuments and mausoleums were so ornate and so interesting. Beautifully kept place and so peaceful.

A great way to tour this fabulous cemetery is on a bicycle. We either ride to the historic cemetery or park at the main entrance and love the gentle rolling hills, beautiful trees and monuments. A peaceful beautiful ride.

What a picture perfect place, full of history and beauty. We searched for Civil War generals and Procter & Gamble headstones. Lovely location.

Spring Grove Cemetery is one of the oldest cemeteries in Cincinnati. Many founding fathers are buried here. It hosts MANY local events, from charity walks to "Owl Prowls". Beautiful spring wildflowers, and wild fall colors. A photographers paradise!
