Oak Hill Cemetery is a historic cemetery in Bartow which was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 2003. The early grave sites date to 1860, and people interred there include Confederate Gen. Evander M. Law, County Seat (or downtown Bartow) land donor Jacob Summerlin, and Polk County pioneer settlers like the Blount, Parker, and Varn families.
The tour starts at the History Center with a short walk of approximately 1 mile to include historic landmarks along the route to the cemetery. The cemetery ground is uneven and visitors are advised to wear appropriate footwear. The cemetery tour is offered at 11 a.m. the first Saturday of every month, November through April.
