Rock Hill Cemetery is an all-black cemetery in rural Loudoun County, Virginia. The cemetery sits on sloping woodland purchased from former slave owners. The grounds fell into disrepair in the 1950s, a situation which was reversed after transfer of stewardship occurred from John Colbert (buried on the grounds) and Vernon Peterson, caretaker as of April 2011. Mr. Peterson was composing an index of interments as of April 2011.
