Description

Eastern Cemetery is often mistakenly thought to adjoin Cave Hill Cemetery, which is next door, to the south, but is actually a separate cemetery and is separated by a 15ft high brick wall topped by razor wire. Eastern Cemetery is abandoned, shut down in about 1989 after it was found that cemetery officials had been destroying areas and re-using them, burying mulitple people in the same grave since about the 1920s, and mishandling cremations in order to cut costs. There is no on-site office; by court order, all existing burial records were turned over to a forensic anthropologist at the University of Louisville.
