Springhill Historic Memorial Garden Cemetery

DeSoto County's oldest cemetery, established in 1836, is located  at the NW corner of Oak Grove Road and Robinson Gin Road in Hernando. By the time of the last major yellow fever outbreak in 1878, there were hundreds of graves, many or most unmarked today. Only six monuments date after 1900. A historical reenactment of people buried in the cemetery takes place each year, close to Halloween.
