Cave Hill Cemetery is a 296-acre (1.20 km2) Victorian era National Cemetery and arboretum located at Louisville, Kentucky. It is the largest cemetery by area and number of burials in Louisville.
The Cave Hill Cemetery Co. was chartered in February 1848, and the cemetery was dedicated on July 25, 1848.
Before the era of large municipal parks, it was common for cities to promote a garden cemetery as a green oasis and recreation destination, and Louisville was no exception.
The first scenic overlook for the cemetery, Twin Lakes Scenic Overlook, opened on August 20, 2008.
