Rose Hill Burial Park is a historic cemetery in Oklahoma City. It was established in 1915 by Charles H. Moureau and the Harden Realty Company.[1] A mausoleum at the cemetery was built in 1919.[2] Gravesites for notable figures in Oklahoma and Oklahoma City's history are part of the cemetery.

The cemetery was vandalized in 1990.[3] In 2016, Boy Scouts handed out small American flags and helped families locate gravesites on Memorial Day at the cemetery.[4]
