Wesleyan Methodist Cemetery, Nobleton

Base of Old Water Tower
This Wesleyan Methodist Cemetery known as The Cemetery on the Hill or The Water Tower Cemetery was established around 1849 in the town of Nobleton in the Twp of King. It is located, on top of the hill,  on the north side of King St approx 5km west of Hwy 27.  What's left of the old head stones have been gathered in to two rows that are located along the east side and center of the lot.  There are a few stand alone monuments still left on the grounds. The name "The Water Tower Cemetery" derived from the fact that at one time a water tower stood on the west side of the property, the base of which can still be seen.  The cemetery was offically closed in 1905.
