Resthaven Cemetery, which is located on the back side of Pine Hill Cemetery, was opened in the late 1920s and was the primary burial ground after Pine Hill Cemetery started to fill. During the early years, Pine Hill was known as Corbin Cemetery since it was the dominant cemetery for the town of Corbin, Kentucky at that time. Later, Pine Hill Cemetery was also known as Pine Grove Cemetery.
