Join us every spring as we explore the history of Hillside Cemetery. Hillside was a beautiful wooded spot covered with pines and oaks within the sound of the surf. Many Daytona Beach families are buried here, as they liked the peacefulness and seclusion of this cemetery. John Andrew Bostrom offered the cemetery land in the 1870’s but no deed was given until Oct. 1, 1896.
There are many original Ormond settlers, two Confederate soldiers, a WWI veteran, and many prominent present day families buried here. We are showcasing only a section at a time, so each yearly tour will have different characters.
