Pioneer Cemetery

Tillsonburg Pioneer Cemetery

The Tillsonburg Pioneer Cemetery is one of the oldest cemeteries in the area. Many of Tillsonburg's earliest settlers, including members of the Tillson family, are buried there.

The cemetery was established in 1838 and closed in 1870.

A total restoration of the one-acre site was completed in 2015. Restoration work included monument cleaning and the addition of a large index stone.

Local historians have done extensive research into the individuals and families buried in the cemetery.
