Welcome to Highland Cemetery

Independence Cemetery

Independence Cemetery has the proud heritage and charm of a country cemetery with the burials of several generations of hardworking families.
The 65-acre Independence Cemetery was incorporated into a nonprofit organization in 1886. On January 1, 1988, the cemetery management and operation became a division of non-profit Highland Cemetery, Inc., in Fort Mitchell. In the spring of 1996, Independence Cemetery bought the adjacent 64-acre farmland, doubling the cemetery's acreage.

Lake scene



Highland Cemetery has 250 beautiful acres of rolling hills, beautiful large trees and 3 lakes. There is over 150 acres not even surveyed for gravesites. This means, generations upon generations of families can be laid to rest in the same cemetery. This tradition is important to many proud families.

The well-maintained atmosphere of Highland, assures families that their loved ones are being properly cared for.We are proud of what Highland Cemetery represents to the community. Some of the acreage not yet used for gravesites has been utilized as Hiking Trails. The trails have added a warmth and human touch to a somewhat misunderstood place.

Highland Cemetery is convenient to all tri-state residents. Take 1-75 North or South to exit 188 Fort Mitchell Exit. Our white cemetery gates are on the left hand side right off the exits.
