Oldham Family Cemetery.jpg

The Oldham Family Cemetery is located in the Kentucky State Fairgrounds. At one time it was part of Samuel Oldham's Plantation called "Fair Hope". In a codicil to his will Samuel stated that 2 acres should be set aside in trust forever as a burial site for all the white and black members of his family. The State of Kentucky has declared this an Exempt Cemetery, prohibiting any change or encroachment upon the resting place of those interred within.
