Cave Hill Heritage Foundation
Restoration • Preservation • Educational
As an integral part of the Louisville community, Cave Hill Cemetery is more than a sacred resting place. For this reason, the Cave Hill Heritage Foundation has been developed as a vehicle for the long-term preservation needs of Cave Hill Cemetery. We provide multiple avenues for your participation in the foundation, and hope that you will take the time to learn about our mission, projects, and membership opportunities.
