Woodhill Cemetery is believed to have originated in the 1850's, being taken over by Franklin Township in approximately 1882 according to A Self Guided Walking Tour of Franklin, Ohio's Historic Woodhill Cemetery written by Geoffrey Gorsuch. When entering Woodhill Cemetery you are reminded of its historic value to the community as its large, handsome, stone gates greet you. Inside you will find the gravesites of Civil War veterans, entrepreneurs, politicians, homemakers and many others who shaped Franklin into the city that we love today. Woodhill's two large mausoleums were erected circa 1900. Woodhill is spread over 100 acres of beautiful rolling hills. The cemetery is a beloved piece of Franklin history and our staff spends countless hours caring for the grounds. Should you need assistance or have a concern, please stop by the cemetery office or call the Township offices at 937.746.2852.
