Highton (Barrabool Hills) Cemetery
Barrabool Hills (Highton) Cemetery
On the 10th November 1855 a meeting was held at the "Race Course" hotel, Ceres, to discuss the establishment of a cemetery.
The Trust applied for a Government grant which enabled a Sexton's office to be built, fences and gates erected and insurance against bushfires! No doubt the horror of Black Thursday 1850, still fresh in residents' minds!
Cemetery Motto - 1855
"Our God is the God of Salvation And unto God the Lord, Belong the Issues from Death"
