Locust Hill Cemetery is a beautiful spot, high on a hill, that at one time was known as Lamasco. This was homestead to a Robert Smith family in 1835. The acreage was later acquired by the Kirkpatrick family. A plot was set aside for a little country cemetery where friends and neighbors of the deceased did the burying. After a few years, the cemetery was deeded to the City of Evansville. One of the first three servicemen to die in combat in WWI is buried at Locust Hill Cemetery.
