The Arboretum is dedicated to the protection and stewardship of Spring Grove Cemetery’s heritage and to promoting environmental sustainability while increasing the beauty of the garden. Through each season, the 750-acre garden is an incredibly beautiful horticultural educational facility for the Cincinnati community. Its heritage is tied to a strong, continuing tradition of horticulturists embedded in Spring Grove’s leadership.
We have a variety of events and tours for a variety of interests. Join us throughout the entire year for events to celebrate history, horticulture and remembrance. In addition to our Signature monthly events, we have many events and tours each month.

Members of the Cincinnati Horticultural Society formed a cemetery association in 1844 to find a location suitable for creating a picturesque park like institution. On December 1, 1844, Salmon Chase and others prepared the Articles of Incorporation and the original 220 acres of “The Cemetery of Spring Grove” were dedicated on August 28, 1845. At the consecration ceremony the founders publicly proclaimed their hope that the natural setting would be a contemplative atmosphere conducive to consolation, commemoration, and education.
