This land was chartered by the General Assembly of Kentucky on February 5, 1848 for the purpose of operating a rural cemetery. Cave Hill was dedicated in July of that year and the transition of Cave Hill Farm into a beautiful and historic cemetery began. Some of the Civil War dead are buried in Cave Hill Cemetery.
