Hillendahl (Blue Light) Cemetery (Part 3 of 3)
This 1970s photo is far different from the Hillendahl cemetery of today. Some diseased trees at Bear Creek Park forced officials to remove dozens of trees in the area. The cemetery now sits on the edge of this clearing. Getting to the cemetery is a tad difficult since it's not visible from any roads inside the park.
If you do manage to find it, there isn't much to see. Well, when I went six years ago, there wasn't much to see. The small cemetery is enclosed in a high fence that's locked. Inside are a few plaques left by the Boy Scouts that identify some of the bodies buried there. There are no visible headstones.
