About Oak Hill Cemetery
Oak Hill Cemtery holds rich history within the confines of its many paths. Burials at the cemetery reach back to around the year 1838 when the Ebenezer Church, a Methodist Congreation, was organzied on the hilltop just off Erwin Street near Cassville Road. Unfortunately, many of the early graves no longer have markers, but depressions in the ground and brick borders give clues to their locations. Some time around 1869 the Cartersville town council voted to adopt the the “old Methodist Cemetery” as a public burial ground. Within four years of its adoption as a public space, it was given the offical name of Oak Hill.
