Bruington Hills Cemetery

 

Location

Peacock Place off Taylors Creek Road Between
Spring Road & Clazemont Road


Condition & Description

This cemetery is in poor condition and has not been maintained in years.
It is overgrown with briars, poison oak, and scrub brush. There is a large
area of periwinkle as ground cover which is typical of old cemeteries. The
cemetery is located in an area of cedars and hardwoods. They are traces
of iris on some of the graves. There is only one tombstone in the cemetery
which is broken. Which seems to be the result of vandalism. The inscription
of that stone has been recovered and is listed below.
