Mound Hill Cemetery is the oldest continuous operating cemetery Medina County. This cemetery has space available to accommodate casketed and cremated remains.
Acreage: 19.194. Number of Burial Spaces Developed to Date: 8946

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.
