Hagler Cemetery Moved

{Robert Bailey – Roane County Historian}

The only known cemetery that was removed in Roane County during the creation of Oak Ridge was the Hagler Cemetery, which was located where the Graphite Reactor is at the Oak Ridge National Lab. It was removed in 1943 to a location off Hen Valley Road near Oliver Springs. Unfortunately, the cemetery has become very overgrown. There are ten graves that have markers. It is not known how many unmarked graves there may be. There are five Union Civil War soldiers buried here. The oldest marked grave is of Charles Magill who died in 1859.
