Established as a pioneer cemetery, the original plat of Mound Hill was
surveyed, and conveyed by deed to Guilford Township for burial purposes in
1824. The grounds ascend gradually from the road, north, to the mound from
which the cemetery takes its name. The mound itself, is thought to be one of
Ohio's ancient Indian burial grounds. The spot has long been considered
consecrated earth, and sacred to their memory.
