Fairview Cemetery

Did you know that there is more to Fairview Cemetery than meets the eye?

 

The City of Bowling Green Fairview Cemetery has a Veteran’s Section that is designated for burials of Warren County Veterans.  Its official name is the Brock E Beery Veteran’s Cemetery.  The City sells memorial bricks for $50.00 that can be placed in the Veteran’s plaza for any Veteran.

This section is dedicated to men and women who have served our country in the armed forces and were honorably discharged. Graves are donated to the veteran, and their families pay a small foundation fee for the headstone or footstone and for the opening and closing of the grave. All Veterans are buried facing the East. The replica of the Eiffel Tower has a special meaning to veterans and their families in Warren County. It helps one to recall the price our fallen soldiers paid for their country’s freedom. It was moved from Fountain Square Park to Fairview Cemetery in 1979.

Fairview Cemetery also has a beautiful grotto fountain that is surrounded by our cremation area.  We have a section in front of the fountain that is designated for in ground cremation burials and two cremation Niches with 48 doors in each one.  There is a beautiful scattering garden that borders this area.

One additional part of our cemetery is the Bloch Chapel.  This chapel was built around 1938 in memory of the Bloch family by their children.  The chapel can be rented for $75 per hour, with a minimum of 2 hours for weddings, funerals, memorial services and other church functions.
