Perfectly manicured grounds and rolling green hills; lily pad dotted lakes and stately trees; colorful flowers and fluttering flags as far as the eye can see. This is not a description of a botanical garden or city park; rather, this is a description of a cemetery. And not just any cemetery, but Spring Grove Cemetery, one of the most haunted cemeteries in Ohio. But don’t let the haunted lore and ghostly whispers keep you away; this Ohio cemetery — a designated National Historic Landmark — is one of the most hauntingly beautiful places in the Buckeye State.

Have you explored Spring Grove Cemetery before? It’s one of the most beautiful places in Cincinnati — and Ohio — even if it has a reputation as being one of the most haunted.

Visit Spring Grove Cemetery daily from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (extended summer hours can be viewed on the website); admission and parking are free and pets are prohibited.
