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 various tours and events, Cedar Hill Cemetery Foundation raises funds to ensure the park-like memorial grounds are preserved and protected in perpetuity.
From the Goodwins to Colts, Keneys and Popes, Cedar Hill Cemetery is the final resting place for many of the namesakes of Hartford’s landmarks. Explore the connections between these prominent residents and the cemetery with former Cedar Hill staff member Mellissa Craig.
Cedar Hill Cemetery Foundation would like to thank the Greater Hartford Arts Council, Connecticut Humanities and the Evelyn W. Preston Memorial Trust Fund, Bank of America, Trustee for their support of the Foundation’s educational mission.
