Northeast of downtown, adjacent to the University of Nevada, Reno, lies Hillside Cemetery, Reno's oldest cemetery- dating back to the 1800s.
|Hillside occupies prime real estate overlooking the downtown skyline- a location which has been a source of contention between several parties over the years.|
|Vandals are frequent visitors.|
The Hillside Cemetery Preservation Foundation, (HCPF), was formed in 2016, for the restoration, preservation, and protection of Hillside Cemetery. For more information, check out this link:
|Many of the 800+ graves are unmarked or identified by piles of stones and debris.|
|Hillside is the final resting place for veterans of at least four wars including the Civil War, |
Spanish American War, Mexican American War and the Florida War.
Although a prime spot to spend eternity, this occupant will forever remain unknown.
