Zachary Taylor National Cemetery

Zachary Taylor National Cemetery is located in Louisville, Kentucky and is the site where Zachary Taylor, the 12th President of the United States, was buried. Soldiers who died in World War II, Vietnam and the Korean wars are also buried in the cemetery. The Zachary Taylor National Cemetery is administered by the National Cemetery Administration, a part of the Department of Veterans Affairs. Established in 1928, the cemetery was made by an act of Congress, initiated by the Taylor family to have the government take title to the family burial site where President Zachary Taylor was interred. The original half-acre Taylor family plot was increased to its present size of 16 acres after the two donations of land from the state of Kentucky. Zachary Taylor National Cemetery was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
