See a President at the National Cemetery this November

Lots of Louisvillians will tell you about Abraham Lincoln's history in Kentucky. He's famous for having lived in Kentucky, along with a few other things he did as President, and he's celebrated in the state. But Louisville is home to another President, and if you've never visited him then now is the perfect time to go. See the Zachary Taylor National Cemetery this November, and go see one of Louisville's lesser-known famous Presidential places.

President Zachary Taylor

The national cemetery is where you will find the final resting place of former President Zachary Taylor and his First Lady Margaret Taylor. The entire cemetery is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and includes many other residents. Soldiers who served in six different wars are buried here, people who fought in the Spanish-American War, both World Wars, the Korean War, Vietnam and the Persian Gulf War.

Richard Taylor, father to Zachary, is also buried here. He fought in the American Revolutionary War. Another family member, W.G.L. Taylor, was a captain for the Confederate Army. There's a huge monument to Zachary Taylor here, along with several other features and details that set this cemetery apart from other national landmarks.

You'll find the Zachary Taylor National Cemetery at 4701 Brownsboro Road, right next to the large Indian Hills neighborhood. After you visit the history at the cemetery, get a look at the newer homes in this modern subdivision.

All Hail Indian Hills

You'll see lots of stunning homes in Indian Hills, but there's more to see in this beautiful neighborhood than bright green lawns and gorgeous architecture. Part of Beargrass Creek wends its way through Indian Hills. There are natural rock outcroppings and other features all over the neighborhood that give this community a unique look. There are thick stands of trees in this neighborhood as well. All these features give Indian Hills a natural look, but you'll find plenty of well-manicured properties here. Homes in Indian Hills are surrounded by landscaping and trees, and filled with the extras that everyone really wants.

Indian Hills is right next to the Louisville Country Club, and the homes here are styled to look and feel modern. You can find hardwood floors, large rooms for hosting parties, gourmet kitchens and all sorts of other features that make homes here truly magazine-worthy. Take a look around Indian Hills this November, and get a look at some of Louisville's older history and some of its best newer places to live.
