The Old Iowa Hill (AKA Protestant, Masonic, I.O.O.F) Cemetery is one of two remaining official cemeteries in Iowa Hill. The other is St. Dominic's Catholic Cemetery. Both are located on Banjo Hill, approximately 1/4 mile northeast of Iowa Hill on the road to Sugar Pine Dam and Foresthill. People who are known to be interred in the area of Iowa Hill but whose exact burial location is unknown have been assigned to the Iowa Hill Divide Cemetery

NOTE: while it is called the "Old Iowa Hill Cemetery" on Find a Grave, this is actually not the original cemetery. This was located near the Schwab house in "downtown" Iowa Hill. "Big Herb" Macy remembered playing on a big white stone there, as large as a square table. When Stewart Schwab built the house, he took a bulldozer and pushed all of the remaining stones into the canyon and buried them. This wasn't the first time of troubles for the old cemetery. In 1859, Adelia Hill blocked off the public highway from Iowa Hill to Bird's Flat thus cutting off communication with the cemetery where their relatives were buried.
