According to Wikipedia (which is 100% fact all the time), “Spring Grove is the second largest cemetery in the U.S. and is recognized as a U.S. National Historic Landmark.”
But Spring Grove is more than just a cemetery. It is a beautiful compilation of 700+ acres adorned with botanical scenery, unique architectural landmarks, and serene bodies of water.
In high school, our photography classes came on field trips here; senior pictures are often taken here (mine were, too!); and brides and grooms use its lovely scenery for wedding photographs. Spring Grove is extremely photogenic, and this past Saturday—in its Spring-like glory—the sunny skies and warm-ish (okay, it was 45 degrees) weather provided the perfect scenario to get out of the house to peruse and document one of Cincinnati’s most picturesque and expansive landmarks.
