Cave Hill Cemetery is located on Baxter Avenue in Louisville, Kentucky. There are 296 acres, 49 of which were sold to the cemetery in 1863 by the Douglass family. It came with an agreement that the fence around the family lot would remain. Let me share my photos with you today.

The child’s grave with the giant clam shell is very poignant and also very beautiful.
