|Oak Hill Cemetery|
Also known as: English Cemetery, Methodist Cemetery, Union Cemetery
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The OAK HILL CEMETERY is located two blocks north of Main Street at the intersection of Elm Street and Oakview Avenue. The cemetery is located to the east of the St Joseph's Cemetery. There is a north/south row of trees forming a visual separation between these two burial sites.
The original cemetery survey was conducted by J E White, County Survery and dated 9-Dec-1895. A note is found which states: "All lots are 15 x 15 feet square unless otherwise noted on plat". The plat map shows 387 lots and is on file at the Chisago County courthouse. It was signed and registered on 13-Feb-1897 by Henry Smith, E M Dahlby, and Martin F Naughaw.
The original survey and plat map recorded the name as the Oakhill Cemetery, North Branch, Chisago County. Obituaries from the past 150+ years have identified this cemetery using at least three different names; Old English Cemetery, Methodist Cemetery, and the Union Cemetery.
Today  the cemetery contains 347 lots with 4 graves available in each lot. Lot sales and record-keeping had previously been done by Ivy May Havens. That responsibility is now held by Linda Olson of Harris, MN.
