Welcome to Cedar Hill Cemetery Foundation
Cedar Hill Cemetery Foundation invites you to discover, experience and explore Hartford’s historic Cedar Hill Cemetery. Established in 1864, Cedar Hill is an American rural cemetery encompassing 270 acres of landscaped woodlands, waterways and memorial grounds. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Cedar Hill serves as a sanctuary for memorial artworks, Hartford history and welcomed wildlife.
In addition to offering tours and events, Cedar Hill Cemetery Foundation raises funds to ensure the park-like memorial grounds are preserved and protected in perpetuity.
Cedar Hill is the final resting place for more than 175 Civil War soldiers some of whom endured horrific conditions as prisoners of war. Evelyn Bollert will share their stories of bravery, resilience and heartbreak.
Cedar Hill Cemetery Foundation’s mission is to preserve, protect and promote in perpetuity the art, culture, history and natural beauty of Hartford’s nationally recognized Cedar Hill Cemetery.
We invite you to support our efforts to maintain and restore the cemetery’s historic architecture, preserve the historic and unique memorial artworks, conserve and protect the natural resources, care for the picturesque trees and shrubs, and present educational tours and events to the public.
