This historic cemetery and arboretum has been designated as ‘A National Historic Landmark’, mainly because of its enchanting beauty and eventful history. This is a non- profit cemetery that was established in the year 1844. It was joint planning and initiative of the members of the Cincinnati Horticultural Society.
The name ‘Spring Grove’ is given due to the presence of so many beautiful flowers planted in here and also because of the evergreen trees that it always seems to be spring here. The name is also justified by the presence of the lake and the lovely birds that come here. The look and design of this cemetery and arboretum were inspired by a number of contemporary old cemeteries of Paris and other countries. The design was thus prepared by the very talented Howard Daniels and the work begun to present this very beautiful place to the whole world.
The lands and gardens were later beautified by a renowned architect called Adolph Strauch and his tremendous job was such that the place is still one of the most beautiful in the city. As mentioned the history has been eventful since the burial of many well-known people has been done over here. The famous and great men include Jacob Ammen (a Civil war General), Jacob Burnet (US Senator), Bernard Kroger (founder of Kroger Supermarket), etc.
