Old Guides Cemetery
Heritage Trail (Walking 3/4 Miles)
Mammoth Cave National Park
This cemetery is just above the entrance to Mammoth Cave.
It is the cemetery that was used for the old guides of the cave
along with some of the patients who died of Tuberculosis when
the cave was used as a hospital. This cemetery was in very bad
shape. It has had a lot of people visiting the cemetery who
have not used a lot of care. There were several tombstones
that could not be read. We learn some of the history of this
cemetery from an exhibit posted outside the cemetery.
