  • A quiet place to reflect on those who have served our country.
  • This is the resting place of the only president to be buried in Kentucky and obviously the cemetary holds his name, but there is also another interesting person buried here that I have not seen in any of the other reviews. The grave of Thomas F. Mantell is also in this cemetary. You will be forgiven for not knowing the name, but you may have heard of how he passed. On January 7th, 1948, Mantell's plane crashed after chasing something he thought was a UFO. Stationed in Frankfort, Mantell's plane crashed in a field in Franklin Kentucky chasing what he believed was a UFO. This incident changed the national view of how the US and the government took UFO sighting.
