Grandview Cemetery is a cemetery in Chillicothe, Ohio.

Grandview Cemetery (originally spelled Grand View as two words) was established around 1841.[2]

The ground the cemetery stands on looks down upon the valleys of the Scioto River and Paint Creek, with a panoramic view of the city of Chillicothe.[2]

The land for Grandview was purchased outside of the city limits of Chillicothe in order to provide a more restful setting for the new cemetery (one of the burial grounds it replaced later became the site of a railroad depot).[2]

Grandview Cemetery was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.[3]
