The OES visited Mound Hill Cemetery on July 1, 2001. Located in Eaton, not too far from Fort Saint Clair, this cemetery was founded in the early to mid 1800s and is the largest cemetery in Preble County. There were a few small mausoleums that stood above the ground, many large obelisks, tomstones shaped like trees and even a full-color monument dedicated to the Civil War veterans buried within the cemetery. There was a small church-like building in the middle of the cemetery that may have been used as a funeral chapel at one time. A small Indian mound was located near the front of the cemetery. We were not too sure if the mound was a burial mound, but there is now a tombstone on the top of it. Thanks goes to Corrine for taking us to Mound Hill Cemetery.
