St. Louis Cemetery, 1600 Newburg Road, Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky  502-451-7710

The first St. Louis Cemetery was opened for services on Christmas, 1811 and was located behind the original St. Louis Catholic Church at 10th and Main.  When the church (which later became the Cathedral of the Assumption in 1852) was relocated in 1831, the dead were moved to the Catholic Section of Western Cemetery and then later to the present St. Louis Cemetery, which was opened in 1867.

Just over a mile of limestone wall surrounds many of Louisville's most prominent Catholics.  It was sometimes referred to as the "Irish" Catholic Cemetery, but as you visit you will see the names of Catholics from many different heritages.  St. Louis has many fine traditional memorials that would not be reproduced today.  Diocesan priests, Xavieran brothers and Little Sisters of the Poor have lots in St. Louis Cemetery. - history submitted by Janis Fowler.
