Fort Hill Cemetery
19 Fort Street, Auburn, NY 13021 • (315) 253-8132

Set on a hill overlooking Auburn, this site was used as a fortress by Native Americans as early as 1100 A.D. An impressive earthwork structure with eight gateways is all that is left of the last fortifications built by early Native American Indians. Gravesites include those of William Seward, Harriet Tubman, suffragette Martha Coffin Wright, and Myles Keogh, who fought with General Custer at the Battle of Little Big Horn. There is also a stone monument dedicated to the Native American orator, Chief Logan.
