Directions & Parking

We are conveniently located in Greater Cincinnati, however, there are some tips to make sure you can find us. We encourage you to use these directions versus using GPS, Google Maps, or other such applications and services.

One of the biggest challenges people have in finding us is that our address is 796 Locust Corner Road, but the directions take you to a steep gravel driveway that is not our entrance.  The parking area and entrance is directly across the street from 809 Locust Corner Road. Do not turn into the steep gravel drive! We have a short paved entryway that will take you toward our own gravel drive and a wider parking area. You will see a silo directly in front of you. Welcome to Heritage Acres!

From the West and South

  1. Take Interstate 275 East, take exit 71 (Hwy. US 52 East) toward New Richmond.
  2. Take Hwy. US 52 for approximately 4.5 miles, the Ohio River will be to your right.
  3. Turn left on Nine Mile Road at the traffic light.
  4. Stop at the stop sign and then go straight, up a small hill and around a curve.
  5. Continue about half a mile, then turn right onto Locust Corner Road.
  6. Continue on Locust Corner Road for about 1.5 miles. You will be heading uphill. When the road levels off and you are no longer going uphill, we are there on your left.

From the North

  1. Take Interstate 275 South and take exit 65 (Beechmont Ave).
  2. Turn left.
  3. Go under the bridge, get in the right lane, and almost immediately turn right onto Nine Mile Road.
  4. Continue on Nine Mile Road for about 3.3 miles (it’s a winding road).
  5. Stay right about halfway along when the road forks.
  6. Turn left onto Locust Corner Road. (About a quarter-mile past Nordyke Road).
  7. Continue on Locust Corner Road for about 1.5 miles. You will be heading uphill. When the road levels off and you are no longer going uphill, we are there on your left.

From the East

  1. Head west toward Cincinnati on 125 ( becomes “Ohio Pike”).
  2. Turn left on Merwin Ten Mile Road at the Circle K and Skyline Chili.
  3. On Merwin Ten Mile Road, go about 1.7 miles
  4. Turn right onto Locust Corner Road. Continue for 1.2 miles as the road winds around past a golf course and a cemetery.
  5. When the road dead ends, turn left. You will still be on Locust Corner Road.
  6. Go two-tenths of a mile to a stop sign. Turn right.
  7. You will still be on Locust Corner Road! You will pass a nature area and trails on your left. Fourth-tenths of a mile after you made the last right turn, the road will bear sharply to your left. That is your cue. Almost immediately you will see the entrance to Heritage Acres on your right.

Heading East on Surface Sreets

  1. Take Beechmont Ave. East towards Nine Mile Road.
  2. Then follow the “From the North” directions above, turning onto Nine Mile Road towards the Ohio River. (This is immediately on the right after you go under the Interstate 275 underpass.)

    When You Arrive

    Our address is 796 Locust Corner Road, but our entrance is directly across the street from 809 Locust Corner Road. Do not turn into a steep gravel drive! Turn right onto a short paved entryway that will take you toward our own gravel drive and a wider parking area. You should see a silo directly in front of you. Welcome to Heritage Acres!

    What to Expect

    Although no two burials at Heritage Acres are exactly alike, this list provides a general idea of what you can expect. For a typical green burial, you may:

    • arrive at the cemetery and be greeted by someone from Heritage Acres, who will gladly answer any questions you may have;
    • participate in a procession to the gravesite (please wear shoes suitable for uneven ground);
    • see a grave that is decorated with flowers and native vegetation. For a body burial, expect slats and ropes to extend across the opening of the grave until the body is lowered;
    • find flowers, pine boughs, twigs, or other biomass covering the bottom of the grave to promote aeration and decay;
    • facilitate a ceremony or service, if desired;
    • participate in lowering the body into the ground, if desired;
    • help fill the grave with soil, if desired;
    • help cover the burial mound with flowers and native plants.
