With its exceptional views and harmonious plantings, Indian Hill Cemetery became the cemetery of choice for Middletown's elite in the late 19th Century, yet Indian Hill Cemetery also reflects Middletown's great diversity, containing graves of families from all the European countries, the Far East, Africa, as well as this area's first settlers and decendents.
Today, Indian Hill Cemetery is still the geographic and community centerpiece of Middletown. It is an active cemetery, and welcomes all faiths and races. Many burial plots are still available, and an entirely new section with 800 burial plots is being developed. A Columbarium (permanent granite structure for housing urns of cremation ashes) was recently installed, and its niches are available for purchase.
When making final arrangements for a loved one, or even pre-arrangements for yourself, please consider Indian Hill Cemetery. Become a part of its rich history and expanding future.
The mission of the Association for the Preservation of the Historic Indian Hill Cemetery is to serve the community as an active burial ground and conserve the physical artifacts, buildings, and infrastructure of the cemetery; to celebrate the American heritage represented by those interred here; maintain the Native American heritage of the land, restore and sustain the landscape, and manage the grounds as an accessible community resource.
