A designated National Cemetery in the city of Danville, Kentucky, the Danville National Cemetery is a listed National Register of Historic Places as of 1998. It was built in 1862, used primarily as an interment site for Civil War soldiers.

The first interments of the Danville National Cemetery were of those fallen soldiers who died in the military hospitals in the city. It was intended as a burial place for Union soldiers and civilians. Next to it stands a Confederate lot, where 66 Confederate soldiers were buried.

With its meager 0.3 acre area, the Danville National Cemetery is already full with its 394 interments. It is not open for new ones anymore, and is mostly serving as a park and a tourist attraction today.
