The land was originally deeded as a cemetery in 1856. It is a very well-maintained cemetery, and is under the management of the Vernon Township board. It is sometimes called South Vernon Cemetery.
On the west front side of the cemetery, there is a large monument which reads: "In memory of the unknown dead who lost their lives in the railroad wreck of the great Wallace Shows, Aug 06, 1903." Small markers surround the monument with names of E. J., Joe, George, John, Allen, and Thomas, unclaimed bodies from the wreck buried here.
Restoration has begun in the cemetery. Please excuse the noise and dust. Currently the mausoleum is getting new sandstone on the roof. Thank you to the people involved in making this happen.
