Milldale Cemetery (School Land Hollow) Cemetery
Scioto County,

Milldale Cemetery is accessed by climbing a steep embankment on Milldale Road in New Boston, Scioto County, Ohio. The cemetery is in a wooded area and is not visible from the road. In 2010 the area was heavily overgrown. The cemetery is also known as School Land Hollow Cemetery.

According to a 1982 inventory by Virgil and Marguerite Ramsey, the cemetery covers about 1.2 acres with “graves scattered over a wide area, most of them on either side of a path that runs up a hill.” The Ramseys found 44 fieldstones and 14 markers with inscriptions.

There was a second inventory done in 1997 by Wayne Campbell, Brenda Campbell and Richard Underwood. This inventory and a map of the cemetery showing mostly fieldstones are available at the Portsmouth Public Library. The narrative for the 1997 inventory describes the cemetery as follows: “Located on Milldale Road just east of the New Boston Football Stadium, on the north side of the road. The cemetery sites on the side of the hill. The first embankment is somewhat steep, then levels off. The north part of the cemetery sits where the hill starts to rise again. The cemetery is bordered by a gully on the west side and a gully splits the cemetery on the east side.” At the time of the 1997 inventory, the cemetery was on private property. According to the Campbell-Underwood inventory, the dated stones range from 1906 to 1963. However, “With the amount of field stones present the cemetery appears to be older than 1906.”
