Pilot Hill

Pilot Hill Cemetery, also known as Centerville Cemetery, was established in 1850 for the community of Centerville located near in what is now known as the town of Pilot Hill. The Pilot Hill Cemetery was established during the beginning of the Gold Rush. There were many miners and growing communities in this region. While the first recorded burial was in 1850, it is possible that this area was used for burials before that time. In 2002, the property was deeded to El Dorado County.

There are two parts to this cemetery: 

  • The “old” cemetery has 210 burials with 24 pre-purchased plots and encompasses approximately one acre. The old section is inactive and only available for pre-needs at this time.
  • The “new” cemetery section is 0.863 acres that has not yet been developed. The new section will be active when the final plans are drawn for the plot layout. Approximately 800 to 1,000 burials could be accommodated on this parcel.
