Louisville, Kentucky: Jesus is My Swingset

RoadsideAmerica.com Team Field Report

Cave Hill Cemetery

Address:
701 Baxter Ave., Louisville, KY
Directions:
Cave Hill Cemetery. From the Cave Hill Cemetery main entrance, at the corner of Baxter Ave. and E. Broadway, follow the road with the solid line into the cemetery for a half-mile. Turn left just after you pass the building with a tower -- the cemetery offices -- on the left. Drive through the parking lot and turn right. Drive up the hill, make the first right, then a quick left. You'll quickly see a short, dead-end road on the left, not much more than a parking spot. Park there, look down the hill, and you'll see the Swingset tombstone.

Daily 8-4:45. Gated after hours. (Call to verify) Local health policies may affect hours and access.

This is my husband-s favorite memorial -- because of the expressions on their faces.
