Description

Also known as Pine Ridge Cemetery. Located in a southeast corner of a section of the Oak Ridge Cemetery in Inverness, Florida, Pine Hill Cemetery was and is used for the burial of the blacks in the community. For many years until the 1980s, Eli White from the East Dampier Street Funeral Home oversaw Pine Hill. Inverness offered to take it over after the city got the title for Oak Ridge Cemetery in 1981; however, local Black churches took over responsibility instead. After teenagers used Pine Hill as their hangout, the Citrus Garden Club in October 2001 adopted the cemetery, where they’ve organized volunteer cleanups four times a year since. "The club quickly recognized the need for some tender-loving care," First Vice President Lesly Smith said. Smith said the first cleanup in November 2001 filled 28 large trash bags filled in paper, bottles and other waste. “It’s in our mission to beautify,” she said, adding the public’s welcome to join the garden club for its next cleanup on Nov. 10. Club members, along with the VFW, also plant flags on the graves of Pine Hill ahead of Veterans Day and Memorial Day. https://www.chronicleonline.com/news/local/county-native-takes-on-pine-hill-cemetery-renovation-history-is-being-tucked-away/article_12af3a46-2dca-11ec-b7e3-2ffcb6f6f789.html
