"Rochester State Hospital opened January 1, 1879. The first cemetery, named Rosemont Cemetery, was used from 1879 to 1897. The location is unknown today as there are no tombstones, but it is thought to be close to the railroad tracks immediately north of the hospital. The cemetery plot map has survived but not the sexton's record, if it ever existed.
A second cemetery was begun after 1897 in what is now Quarry Hill Park. Eleven tombstones remain although there were hundreds of burials. The Olmsted County Court House, Recorder's Office, has the cemetery records for this cemetery. The records (3 books) contain the lot number for each burial, case number and burial dates. Death dates are complete only for the years 1912-1915." (Page 148 of
