Juniper Hill Cemetery is a historic cemetery at 24 Sherry Avenue in Bristol, Rhode Island. The original 22 acres (89,000 m2) were purchased from Levi DeWolf, a local farmer, in 1856, and the cemetery corporation that owns it was chartered in 1864. It is a fine example of the mid-19th century rural cemetery movement, with winding lanes and paths. The landscaping was designed by Niles Bierragaard Schubarth, who had done similar work at other Rhode Island cemeteries. Its main entry is a massive stone gate built in 1876, and there is a gate house just inside, designed by Clifton A. Hall and constructed from granite quarried on site.[2]

The cemetery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.[1]
