HARRISON’S HILLOCK - It was reported there was a grave in the old City Cemetery with a curious past. The overgrown and neglected hillock was placed in the cemetery in 1841 as a tribute to President William Henry Harrison, whom the county unanimously supported in the election of 1840, but who contracted an illness at his inauguration and died several weeks later. Following the untimely death, ladies of Dublin decided to honor their fallen president by placing flowers on a small hillock in the old City Cemetery. The tradition continued for many years, but with the Civil War and other distractions to occupy their thoughts, the practice was abandoned. When William Henry Harrison's grandson, Benjamin Harrison, was elected President, the old tradition was revived. The hillock lies possibly near the left rear corner of the cemtery.
