Vine Street Hill Cemetery



The German Evangelical Reform Churches of St. Peter and St. Paul created the cemetery with land purchased by Samuel West in 1849 and was called the German Evangelical Protestant Cemetery.  The chapel was built in 1850 and designed by George and August Brink and is on the National Register of Historic Places.  In 1941, it became the Vine Street Hill Cemetery.  One of the most notable burials in the cemetery is August Hermann – a local politician, owner of the Cincinnati Reds, and chairman of the National Commission for the National League who died in 1931.
