Spring Hill Cemetery is a historic cemetery at High and Brown Streets in Marlborough, Massachusetts. Established in 1675, it is the city's oldest cemetery. It has about 650 known burials, dating from its establishment to 1977. It is located on a 2.62-acre (1.06 ha) parcel on a hill just east of the downtown area, and is accessed via a single entrance marked by granite posts at High and Brown Streets. Burials are laid out generally in rows, with headstones facing west. There are four earth-covered tombs near the entrance dating to the first half of the 19th century.
