Prairie Hill in Limestone County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Prairie Hill Cemetery
Prairie Hill Baptist Church members built a sanctuary here in 1890 on 3 acres donated by J.R. and Medora Leathers. A portion of the acreage near the sanctuary was set aside in 1894 to establish this community cemetery. The first recorded burial was that of Eula Jane Howard on June 29, 1894. The Prairie Hill Cemetery Association, established in 1958 and chartered in 1975, maintains the cemetery which has been enlarged over the years. Interred here are area pioneer settlers and their descendants, and veterans of conflicts ranging from the Civil War to Vietnam.
