Bee Hives at Indian Hill

The Board of Trustees and The Friends of Indian Hill are excited to announce that the cemetery is now part of a new era of conservation. The cemetery is now home to new honey bee hives. Our beekeeper, Mark Bell, has placed several bee hive boxes at the cemetery in an area not suitable for interments. Mark will monitor the progress of the newly established beehives and hopefully, at some point, be able to harvest honey. Local raw honey does more than taste good, it has many medicinal uses. 1/3 of the food we consume each day is pollinated mostly by bees. Raising bees is becoming more popular by the day and the cemetery is pleased to be a part of this environmentally responsible program.


Together, we can ensure that Indian Hill Cemetery remains a park, as well as an active cemetery, where people can walk, bike, jog, relax, paint and enjoy the beauty of this historic cemetery.

At the dedication of Indian Hill Cemetery on September 30, 1850, introductory remarks by Austin Baldwin, Esq. noted " the subject of a Public Cemetery for Middletown and its vicinity has been one which has for a long time anxiously occupied the minds of a portion of our fellow citizens.......I trust it is unnecessary for me here to say, why this place has been selected; it speaks too strongly in its own behalf". He continues his comments about the beauty of Indian Hill "commanding from its summit, a view of varied scenery, scarcely equaled in New England; will, in the course of time, become one of the most interesting, beautiful, and imposing Cemeteries in the Union".
