This cemetery is maintained and in good shape. The cemetery sign reads: 'Castle Rock Valley Cemetery, founded 1863.' The central drive of this cemetery leads to a large caste iron life-sized soldier. The iron soldier is in memory of 'our soldier dead', dedicated 30 May 1913. 

In "History of Dakota County and the city of Hastings", by Rev. Edward D. Neill, written in 1881, he writes: '...At the annual town meeting held 7 April 1863, a committee was appointed to select a site for a public cemetery. ... The committee reported having selected six acres in the north-east corner of south-east quarter of section 21, which could be purchased for five dollars an acre. ... Upwards of a hundred internment's have been made. Previous to the establishment of the cemetery, the dead were buried in different parts of the town, on the farms of relatives on the deceased. A number of these bodies have been removed and placed in the public cemetery.' (page 334).

Neill also writes: 'He [Joseph Harris] settled in the town in the spring of 1855, made his claim in the south-west quarter of section 17, but lived with his son on the north-east quarter of section 20 until he died 30 September 1869, in his eightieth year of his age. He was buried in the cemetery belonging to the town on the east side of section 21.' (page 332).

The Dakota county cemetery records compilation lists this cemetery as: Castle Rock Valley Cemetery (formerly Rose Hill), established 1863. 6 acres. Located Section 21, NE 1/4 of SE 1/4. County Road 78.

This cemeteries burials were transcribed in 1996.
