Eloquently Evergreen

Today, I bring you a series of photos that I took at Evergreen Cemetery, Southgate, Kentucky.

Evergreen is the largest cemetery in all of northern KY, and it is quite beautiful.
With it’s 300 acres, it’s a perfect place for walking, biking or hiking. I got a work out traipsing up and down the hillsides.

This is the cemetery where Raymond and Charlie’s father was Buried in Rain Man. I really need to watch that movie again…

A brief history of Evergreen Cemetery can be found here:

I’ll begin with a few historical photos/postcards.

I hope that you enjoy!
