Lebanon National Cemetary

The 15-acre Lebanon National Cemetery is a place of natural beauty and reverence. Located at 20 Highway 208, and just outside Lebanon, the Heart of Kentucky, it dates to the Civil War (soldiers who died in the Battle of Perryville are interred here) and remains
active. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. It is one of only seven national cemeteries in the state of Kentucky, and one of only 134 national cemeteries across the country. Its hallowed grounds are the final resting place for more than 5,600 veterans. Approximately 10,000 people visit the Lebanon National Cemetery from all over the world. Every single day, people come to the cemetery, even during inclement weather. There’s plenty of parking, and strolling the grounds can be a highly emotional experience. The Lebanon Nation Cemetery is open to visitors seven days a week from sunrise to sunset. Group/bus tour arrangements must be made in advance, and the Lebanon Tourist &
Convention Center office staff is available to assist. Call (270) 692-0021. TOURS Contact Lisa Mattingly, (270) 692.3390 Hours and additional info: www.cem.va.gov
