About Walnut Hills Cemetery
Walnut Hills Cemetery is one of Cincinnati’s oldest, operating establishments. It opened in1843 under the name of “The Second German Protestant Cemetery” and comprised of about 5 acres. The first meeting was held on Feb. 6, 1843, the first lots were recorded as sold on May 4, 1843, and the first burials were made on June 30, 1843. The original incorporators were Louis Wehmer, Charles Wolf, August Frieman, C.F. Bultmann and Hermann Ficke.On Sept. 25, 1941, the name was officially changed to Walnut Hills Cemetery. This was done to eliminate some of the confusion with “The First German Protestant Cemetery” located in the 3600 block of Reading Road. That cemetery, which opened in 1802, had been closed for burials since 1864 after many victims of the cholera epidemics in Cincinnati in 1849 and 1864 had been buried there. It was thought at the time that even touching the bones could spread the cholera germ again and start another epidemic.
