Oak Hill Cemetery Reviews
My husband and I love walking through old cemeteries and when we passed this one we knew we had to turn around and go back. The only problem was it had just stopped raining so the ground was very wet ... more »
My parents are buried here and it is always well kept. The only thing that could be better is when they cut the grass they could clean around the head stones more »
Moreover this is a very well maintained and historic cemetery. Dates going back to the 1830’s. Beautiful monuments and a variety of them. Sarcophagi and tombs can be seen. The grounds are well maintained. There are some graves and monuments damaged and disrespected, but that’s to be expected at some level in a 200 year old cemetery. There’s wide open vistas and plenty of space to visit your departed loved ones in peace.
This cemetery is filled with gorgeous historical old monuments. You can wander through and find some very interesting things. However, the place has fallen into a state of disrepair. I have never seen anyone working on the grounds here. There are dead trees and scrubs and weeds galore. Small trees are growing out of bushes and covering the names on the stones etc. The grass isn't cut and the trees are never pruned or even cleaned around. There are loads of what looks like 20 year old faded Christmas flowers, broken vases, rusted metal ornaments and broken statues around the stones. The lower right side looks like a goodwill yard sale because of all the old broken things thrown around by the wind. What a shame to let such a gorgeous place get into such bad shape. The people who run this place should be ashamed.
