City staff at Oak Hill Cemetery work hard to maintain the beauty of the facility. Therefore, we would like to provide the following suggestions.
Decorations Placed in or on the Ground
Please do not place holiday flowers earlier than 7 days prior to the holiday and remove holiday flowers 7 days after the holiday.
Do not leave live floral plants for more than a few days (especially near a roadway).
If cemetery patrons wish to keep their decorations, they must be retrieved by June 2nd after which time they will be removed by cemetery staff in order to continue the maintenance cycle.
Flowers in Vases & Saddles
Flowers placed in vases that are an integral part of the tombstone and saddles placed on the monuments will not be removed by staff.
Artificial arrangements and saddles:
Place the name on the bottom of the arrangement. This can be done utilizing tape wrapped around 1 of the under wires. Also be sure to bend the wires underneath to a very tight fit, as wind can move items.
These may be tied down and hooked to tent stakes driven into the ground as close to the monument as possible.
Thank you for helping us maintain the cemetery’s beauty.
Oak Hill Cemetery commemorates life and records history. Established in 1880, the cemetery serves as a peaceful and revered site where family and friends can gather and provide a beautiful resting place for their loved ones.
Location & Details
Located at the intersection of Holly and University, the cemetery consists of 32.5 acres and is managed and maintained by a city department of 3 employees: the manager, grounds foreman and a seasonal assistant. The department continues to preserve and honor past generations, yet strives to serve the needs of present and future generations as well.
A grave locator is situated at the cemetery entrance, and the maps provided there will direct you to burials within the cemetery.
The City of Siloam Springs accepts said properties for the limited purpose of performing such maintenance as is reasonably necessary to maintain the cemeteries as they exist today, such as by mowing, trimming and taking similar steps to minimize any negative visual impact, and whereas, it is not the intention of the City of Siloam Springs to make improvements to the properties unless and except through the receipt of grants or donations for such improvements so that any such work would have little to no fiscal impact on the City.
