Gravestone Photos from Grove Hill Cemetery – Shelby County

Grove Hill Cemetery, Shelbyville, Shelby County, Kentucky

Grove Hill Cemetery is located in the city of Shelbyville in Shelby County, Kentucky. It is a beautifully kept cemetery with a mixture of old and new stones. We enjoyed our visit June 6, 2017 – I can’t believe it’s been five years! Ritchey found a geocache in the cemetery while I took photographs. This is just a sampling of the photographs taken that day – I took almost 400 during our time there.

  1. Thank you for the gravestone photos. The stories they hint at are interesting, aren’t they? My husband and I also enjoy geocaching, it’s a great way to combine multiple hobbies and gives you something else to do while traveling.
