The 296-acre Victorian-era National Cemetery and arboretum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Several prominent figures are laid to rest at Cave Hill, including Muhammad Ali, KFC Founder Col. Harland Sanders, and fonder of Louisville George Rogers Clark. It’s also the resting place of many of Louisville’s Spirits industry leaders, including Julian Proctor Van Winkle, better known as “Pappy,” the namesake of the most coveted Bourbon in the world, as well as George Garvin Brown (founder of Brown-Forman and inventor of Old Forester Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey) and his business partner George Forman. The founders of the storied Stitzel-Weller Distillery in Shively rest at Cave Hill, too, and Paul Jones, founder of Four Roses, is entombed in an antebellum mausoleum.
