The Hillcrest Cemetery is significant as the final resting place of men and women who made contributions to Cary’s social, economic, political and religious growth and development during the 19th and 20th centuries.
Interred at the cemetery are 15 former mayors and a number of prominent local education and business leaders, including members of the Jones, Page, Templeton and Guess families, as well as Cary High School principal Marcus Baxter Dry, Esther Ivey, Russell O. Heater, Alfred "Buck" Jones and R.S. "Dad" Dunham.
The Town of Cary acquired most of the cemetery in several transactions during the 1960s and 1970s, making it the town’s only municipal cemetery.
