rospect Hill Cemetery is located at 700 North George Street near historic downtown York, PA. We are the biggest and oldest cemetery in the area.
We are a private cemetery that includes numerous historic graves including those of Declaration of Independence signer Philip Livingston, Civil War Union Corps Commander William Buell Franklin, and Civil War industrialist Arthur Briggs Farquhar. Soldiers Circle is dedicated to the many Union dead buried in the cemetery; a marker honors five unknown Confederate soldiers also buried here.
Points of interest include a walking tour of our Civil War era residents, the Iraq/Afghanistan War flag memorial, one of the oldest buildings designed by J. A. Dempwolf, and some of the finest cemetery sculpture in the nation.
Our Cemetery continues to be a place of beauty and remembrance, worthy of the precious memories that the families of York entrust to us.
