Cincinnati's Spring Grove Cemetery was chartered in 1845, and is the second largest nonprofit cemetery in the United States and one of the most beautiful. Of its 733 acres, approximately 433 are developed. The burial site for many Union dead (including 40 Civil War generals) and most of Cincinnati's social and political elite, it has been placed on the National Historical Register.
