Rose Hill Cemetery, located in Hagerstown, Maryland, is the oldest public cemetery in Washington County Maryland. The cemetery features over 102 acres of burial space and is the final resting place of over 43,000 individuals.

The cemetery was established on land originally granted to the Wroe family by King George III in the 1700s. Dr. John A. Wroe and his wife purchased the land. Their home was on a hill called Wroe's Hill. In 1865, William T. Hamilton and a group of individuals established the Hagerstown Cemetery Association and in 1866 purchased land needed to establish the area's first public cemetery and chartered the cemetery as Rose Hill Cemetery of Hagerstown.

  • Beautiful cemetery with a friendly and helpful staff. As an amateur radio operator it was also neat being able to visit the final resting place of Hiram Percy Maxim (founder of the ARRL).
  • To all the staff at Rose Hill thank you for helping me lay my 8 month old baby boy to rest on September 30th. It made me feel better knowing that he is surrounded by other babies in "ANGEL LAND ".and it's only a 10 minute walk from my house. Thank you very much.
