This cemetery is the 2nd largest cemetery in the United States and the most beautiful cemetery and arboretum. Established in 1845, the cemetery has 44 miles of winding roads and 733 acres with over 220,000 people interred there. The landscaping, architecture, history and 15 lakes are beautiful. Spring Grove is considered one of the magnificent examples of landscape design in the country. It is one of only five cemeteries in the USA that is designated a National Historical Landmark. It has many State & National Champion Trees. Famous Cincinnati families such as Taft, Proctor, Gamble, Kroger and Civil War officers are just a few of the famous people buried here. We spent several hours driving through the huge cemetery took photos of unique tombstones, Jacque by a Johnny Appleseed statue, a tombstone for Mr. Coffin, controversial tombstones of SpongeBob Square Pants and a tomb that looked like the Egyptian Sphinx.
