The grave of Daniel Boone, which has been open for more than 150 years, is the biggest draw at this cemetery.

Ran through the cemetery as part of the Kentucky History Half Marathon and then came back later to go through it more slowly. Beautiful river views and views of the Capitol building, along with an interesting variety of gravestones. Definitely worth a stop!
