A Spring Visit to Lexington Cemetery

One of the most beautiful sights in the world is the explosion of blooming dogwoods and red buds in the Kentucky Bluegrass in April. And one of the best places to witness that is in the historic Lexington Cemetery. With the blooms passing their prime, I hurried to take my family to see the beauty before it passes for another year.

Dating from 1849, the cemetery is the final resting place of governors, vice-presidents, soldiers, preachers. Henry Clay, the most famous Kentucky politician, is interred there, and his statue towers above all.

While the cemetery is always a beautiful place to drive through, the dogwoods are fading quickly. Don’t delay.
