Hillside Cemetery is the oldest established cemetery in Reno, NV and it has suffered severe neglect, vandalism, and threats from developers for decades. This amazing Victorian Garden cemetery has not been properly cared for since Wiltshire Saunders passed away in 1905. A few families maintain their family plots but it is difficult to appreciate their effort when the rest of the grounds are in such disrepair. At this time, Hillside Cemetery Preservation Foundation’s small group of volunteers currently clean the grave sites. Hillside Cemetery Preservation Foundation is dedicated to preserving and protecting our oldest cemetery through community involvement and education. We must work together to save Hillside for future generations.
