About Oak Hill Cemetery

Oak Hill Cemetery 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 congregation, was organized 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. Sometime around 1869 the Cartersville town council voted to adopt the “old Methodist Cemetery” as a public burial ground.  Within four years of its adoption as a public space, it was given the official name of Oak Hill.
