East Hill Cemetery began with the burial of 5-year old Nellie Gaines in 1857.
Many local pioneers and their descendants are buried
here. And, there are a few travelers buried here
whose identity was never known. There are people
here whose lives were ordinary, even obscure, and
others who were well known and accomplished
During its existence this historic cemeteries
appearance has varied from jungle-like to park-like.
Presently, under the care of an active and concerned
board, it is in very good condition. But, in order to
maintain that beauty, the generous help of the public
is needed. East Hill’s continued upkeep depends
upon the support of all interested parties. Your gifts
will be very much appreciated.
