OAK HILL CEMETERY
In 1869, founders of the Town of Burton designated 5.8 acres at this site for a burial tract. Mrs. John M. burton, wife of the pervious owner of the land, was buried here in 1871, her husband, in 1877. Civic leaders bought the tract in 1890, and chartered the Burton Cemetery Association with a ladies auxiliary formed in 1900. The Association governed the proerty for 50 years. By 1926, the public knew the facility as "Oak Hill". Burton Cemetery Association was revived in 1973, took over from an interim "Oak Hill Cemetery Association", and again cares for this historic site. (1977)
