  • The Spring Hill Cemetery is the largest and most historical in Kanawha County. It's more than a cemetery however, which reflects it's new name "Spring Hill Memorial Park". Most of Charlestons founders are buried there, along with pioneers from across the county.
  • Usually very nicely maintained. The visit in late August 2016 found that much of the cemetery had not been mowed. Talking with mowing staff, I discovered that only 4 of the 20 plus normal crew was working. Everyone else had quit. Sad. Still, though, I believe the City will get things in order and not let this beautiful place deteriorate.
