The Greater Huntington Park & Recreation District takes great pride in the care of its Historic Cemeteries. 

Spanning 110 acres near Huntington's Southeast Hills, Spring Hill Cemetery is the resting place for many of
 Huntington's noteworthy trailblazers and families. One hallowed gravesite is the Marshall Memorial,
 the burial site of six members of the 1970 Marshall University Football Team, who perished in a
 tragic plane crash along with 69 other players, coaches, supporters and crew members.

The Cemetery is also home to the Spring Hill Memorial Bell Tower.  The 600 pound Bronze Bell
 stands to honor Veterans, lost loved ones and victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Also it is the home of part of the twisted New York / New Jersey rail system that
 carried thousands of people to work in the World Trade Center.

 Spring Hill Cemetery was established in 1874 when the City of Huntington purchased this land
 from the Central Land Company owned by Collis P. Huntington.

The name of Spring Hill is though to have come from an old Spring House
 that used to set near where the first bodies were laid to rest.
