This is a Jewish cemetery and only those that have paid for membership in the association are allowed to have a plot space. Earliest records for the cemetery is for a burial in July of 1886.

Stones are placed on the headstone when family members visit the grave. The upkeep of this cemetery is paid for by the association dues, donations, and other investments.
