Cedar Hill Cemetery
Originally constructed as Green Hill Cemetery, this 32 acre expanse of hilly terrain and cedar trees is on the National Historic Register. Cedar Hill Cemetery is located on the corner of North Main Street and Constance Road and is the final resting place for many Confederate Generals and soldiers. There are many veterans buried in Cedar Hill and include officers and soldiers in World War I, World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, etc. The entrance off of Mahan Street houses monuments and a cannon that serve as a memorial to the Veterans from the different wars that are buried in the cemetery. Cedar Hill also is the final resting place for many prominent citizens of Suffolk as well as former City and State officials such as former Governor Mills Godwin. Cedar Hill also houses several family mausoleums and very unique tombstones and structures.
Cedar Hill has the City’s first scatter garden which allows the scattering of ashes in place of a burial. This scatter garden is surrounded by a rod-iron fence with benches and a memorial board located at each end.
