Spring Hill is the largest cemetery in Cabell County and is the final resting place of over 300 Civil War soldiers. Of the seven Civil War generals who were buried in West Virginia, two were buried at this cemetery--Confederate General Albert Gallatin Jenkins and Union General John Hunt Oley. There are also numerous veterans of the Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, and the Korean and Vietnam conflicts of the Cold War. Military personnel from these wars and other conflicts are buried in areas with designations such as “Soldier’s Rest,” “Soldier’s Field” and “Veterans’ Plot.”
The Soldier's Rest plots were organized in 1925 by the newly-created Board of Park Commissioners and a large cross, designed and erected by Presbrey-Leland Inc. of New York City, overlooks the entire lot.
Spring Hill is also the burial site of many of Huntington's most prominent founders and developers.
