Welcome to Linden Grove Cemetery and Aboretum
located in the Westside neighborhood of Covington, Kentucky. 
Serving since 1843.

We were busy in 2015 and 2016! We have added 42 new trees, giving us a total of 332 in the collection. Of the 332, we have 100 difference species, varieties and cultivars. Also, we have had five traditional burials and four cremations.


The Cemetery is a featured walking tour on the Experience Covington Cultural Heritage Tour funded by a Preserve America grant. The audio tours are administered by Renaissance Covington. The tour provides an excellent opportunity to showcase the Cemetery as part of a larger, citywide, cultural heritage promotion. 

Linden Grove, originally called the Cincinnati and Covington Cemetery, was established in 1843 by the now defunct theological seminary, Western Baptist Theological Institute.  The Institute laid out a small cemetery on a portion of its extensive property, and the growth of the City of Covington eventually surrounded the cemetery. As hard times hit the cemetery, it was placed in receivership in 1948; but in 1998 the City of Covington and the Kenton County Fiscal Court established a Board of Overseers to manage and operate the Cemetery.

Linden Grove Cemetery has more than 22,000 burials over 22 acres.
  We are open 7 days a week from 9 am to 5 pm for your convenience.
