Eastern Cemetery is located on Baxter Avenue in Louisville, KY next to the infamous Cave Hill cemetery. The cemetery suffered from years of horrible mismanagement before being abandoned and left to the mercy of vandals. Volunteers now take care of the cemetery doing what they can, but it still sits in what is incredible, although improving disrepair. An old building with a crematorium and chapel sits in the back of the cemetery. It was at one point a squatter's paradise, but has now been repainted and all the entrances bricked up. I have included photos of the crematorium before and after a clean up done a few years ago.
