Frankfort Cemetery

215 East Main Street, Frankfort, KY 40601, USA

Frankfort Cemetery is a highly scenic cemetery whose southern edge overlooks the Kentucky River, the state capitol and the town of Frankfort. The cemetery has been described as "Kentucky's Westminster" because of the number of famous people buried here. A brochure gives the location of the graves of many Civil War notables, the Confederate monument and surrounding unknown graves, and the state military monument that contains information on Kentucky's role in the Civil War.
