This well manicured cemetery is located next to the College in Truro and gets its name from the terraced landscape surrounding the cemetery. The cemetery in the Churchyard of St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church was closed down and many of the markers from the cemetery were relocated to Terrace hill and are lined up on the South side of the cemetery. They do not, however mark the graves of those whose names appear on them. Since 1873, deceased parishioners have been buried at what is now Terrace Hill Cemetery on Kaulback Street. Prior to that, people were interred in the church’s surrounding yard on Prince Street in downtown Truro.

About 40 stones from the former cemetery were relocated to Terrace Hill, the rest destroyed. And the remains… remained.
