Orr Mill Cemetery
Preserving Our Cemeteries
Deeded to the City in 1992, these humble grounds are the final resting place for some Orr Mill employees and family members dating to the 1800s. Numerous graves are here, marked and unmarked, including infants.
Help us improve these unique memorial grounds as a tribute to our past and to welcome visitors for generations to come.
