Cedar Hill Cemetery, previously known as Forest Lake Cemetery, and also formerly Nonesuch Plantation, is a cemetery located in Suitland, Maryland. Its current name was implemented in 1913. It is over 150 acres (0.61 km2) in size and the oldest tombstone reads "Philenia W. Patte, Nov. 19, 1871, 58 years". There is a mass grave for the victims of the Terra Cotta Railroad wreck at this cemetery. One person of note buried at Cedar Hill Cemetery is George Keefe, a one-time professional baseball player.

Dionicio Rodriguez, a Mexican builder and artist, built six pieces in concrete at Cedar Hill during 1936 to 1938 most using a faux bois technique to make them resemble wood. He built, two footbridges, a bench, a table in a pergola, a hollow "tree trunk" and an Annie Laurie Wishing Chair, also in a pergola.
