The Charleston Town Cemetery was the one in operation before 1869, when the Spring Hill Cemetery was incorporated. All of the history books claim that the one acre lot on Kanawha Boulevard, East was given by the Ruffners for the purpose of a town cemetery; but, there is a deed proving that the acre was actually sold to the town of Charleston for this purpose.
Yyou will also find a transcription of the burial list from the newspaper story of the survey which took place before work was started to transform the cemetery into a park. The actual image of the newspaper clipping, given to me by Mr. Richard Andre, town historian and member of the board of directors of Spring Hill Cemetery, appears in the PDF file on this page which you can open by clicking on the Adobe Icon.
