Hillcrest Cemetery is a designated Provincial Historic Resource. It is an active cemetery that includes the graves of victims of the Hillcrest Mine Disaster of June 19, 1914 in which 189 men were killed.

Although most of the men who died in the explosion were buried in the two mass graves, there are others in individual plots throughout the cemetery, some men were buried in other cemeteries in the area. At least 2 men were shipped back to Nova Scotia to be buried close to their families there.
