Cedar Hill Cemetery is located on the west side of OH-79, about a ½ mile north of the intersection with OH-16, in Newark, Ohio (Newark Township, Licking County). The coordinates are 40° 4' 7.87" N, 82° 23' 16.75" W.

Cedar Hill Cemetery is very large. In fact, it is the largest cemetery in Licking County, and it is still active. There are many old gravestones, and most are in great shape. It is very well maintained by the Cedar Hill Cemetery Association.

Cedar Hill Cemetery is also supposedly haunted. The haunting I hear about the most involves the Baker Mausoleum. Many people refer to this mausoleum as an asylum, probably because of it's creepy exterior - it is very old, and there is a weeping woman statue in front of it. Legend states that if you put your ear against the locked door, you'll hear screams and muffled voices inside.

There is also a large gravestone with the carving of a baby's face that is supposedly haunted. It's located west of the Baker Mausoleum. What you're supposed to do is stare at the baby's face for at least a minute. Then turn your head away for a couple seconds before looking at the gravestone again. When you look at the gravestone again, the legend states that the baby's face will be looking in a different direction.
