Located in the "military section" of the Cave Hill National Cemetery, this structure is all the remains of a rostrum constructed in 1898. It was once a speaking platform for the various remembrance events and ceremonies held in this section of the cemetery. It has not seen use in a number of years, and though somewhat conserved, it has fallen into relic condition.
A view of the rostrum, approaching it from the side. It sits at the base of a hill near a small pond.
View from the rostrum, looking up the nearby hills. When it was built, most of the graves were of Civil War soldiers, and it probably functioned to commemorate those dead in regular ceremonies held by different civic groups.
New Albany National Cemetery, as well as the Zachary Taylor National Cemetery a few miles away.
