The City of Clinton opened its first municipal cemetery in 1889. We have
expanded our areas over the years to currently provide a total of three
cemeteries: Springvale, Sandhill, and Clinton Cemetery. A list of rules and operating procedures are associated with our cemeteries.
The Springvale and Clinton Cemeteries adjoin one another off Elizabeth and Main Streets. Currently, plot sales are available in the 5th addition for upright and flat headstones while the 4th addition has been set aside for mausoleums only. A schedule for current pricing of Springvale is available to the public.
The Sandhill Cemetery located just off Sampson Street has just opened the 6th addition and offers plot sales for upright or flat stones. A schedule for current pricing of Sandhill is available to the public.
The Clinton Cemetery plot sales were closed many years ago. No plots are available in this section. Many of our Civil War Veterans have been laid to rest on these grounds. Due to the historical significance of this cemetery, it is protected against vandalism by two locked gates.
