|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
AKA Foresthill Protestant Cemetery.
What is now the Foresthill Community Cemetery was established in 1858. The original plots were of old timber and gold families on the Foresthill Divide. By the 1980s, a few burials were still taking place in the newer part of the cemetery, but the whole was overgrown and un-kept. In the late 1990s, the cemetery, at that time known as the Foresthill Protestant Cemetery, was renamed the Foresthill Community Cemetery. The Foresthill Community Cemetery Corporation, a completely volunteer group, now administers and maintains the cemetery, holding one major fund-raiser every year, the Luminary Event, to do so. (Foresthill also has a Catholic Cemetery, which is owned by the Catholic Church; a Todd Valley Cemetery and a Native American Cemetery, which are on private ground.) Dates back to the mid-1850s. Section for new burials is still in use and should be recorded in the "FORESTHILL COMMUNITY CEMETERY."
