History

Fort Hill Cemetery was incorporated on May 15, 1851 under its official name: "Trustees of the Fort Hill Cemetery Association of Auburn". The original Cemetery consisted of 22 acres and was dedicated on July 7, 1852. Today the cemetery has 83 acres of land. In 1951, the Jewish section of the cemetery was created and in 1998, the Oak View section opened with space for new burials. In 2016 a veteran's section was established, and plans for a cremation garden were started.

The name "Fort Hill" comes from the Cayuga Indians who had used this land as a fortfied hill against attacks from rival tribes during the 1500s and 1600s.
