Cave Hill Cemetery visit
Here is our video of the famous Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville, KY...best known to be Colonel Sanders resting place.
Cave Hill Cemetery was chartered by the General assembly of Kentucky on Feb. 5 1848 for the purpose of operating a rural cemetery. The cemetery was dedicated in July of that year, and the transition from Cave Hill Farm into beautiful and historic Cave Hill Cemetery began.
Famous people laid to rest include:
George Rogers Clark, Colonel Sanders, Patty Smith Hill (creator of the song Happy Birthday), George Barry Bingham, Sr.(Courier Journal founder), Carl Theodore Fischer, Sr.(Meat Packing), George Keats (brother to the poet John Keats), Dr. John C. Croghan (proprietor of Mammoth Cave tourist attraction), Jim Porter (the Kentucky Giant), Meriwether Lewis Clark, Jr.( started Churchill Downs and invented the KY Derby), and Huse Baker (our father).
