Cemetery notes and/or description:
Sunset Hills is the oldest cemetery in Boonville, and is one of two cemeteries owned and operated by the City. By city ordinance, the cemeteries are under the supervision of a Sexton who is the Director of Parks for the City. A five member Cemetery Advisory Board appointed by the City Council meets in January, March, May, July, September and November, on the fourth Thurday at 3:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, Cit Hall. The meetings are open to the public. POC: Gary Nauman, Director of Parks & Recreation, 1221 11th Street, Boonville, 660-882-7447; gary.nauman(a t)boonville-mo.org.

The cemetery consists of 11 acres with burials dating back to before 1835. Many of those interred here include early pioneers who contributed to the growth and development of Boonville. The cemetery was originally platted as the "Methodist Cemetery." In 1844, ownership transferred to the City. The cemetery closed to burial lot sales in 1985; burials are allowed in family owed lots.
