Cemetery notes and/or description:
"The Little White Church far precedes the town of Palmerton. And those responsible for its establishment came from the founding families of this region of Carbon Co.
The original road through the Lehigh Gap was a military road built in the 1740s. This became the Moravian Road and later became known as the Easton to Berwick Pike. From Lehigh Gap a branch of the road led to the village of Stemlersville, in present day Towamensing Twp. Along this road is where the church and cemetery were established.

Originally known as the Church of the Evangelical Association, it was erected of stone in 1844, mainly through the efforts of two men. Rev. Jacob Snyder began the plan for the church, and donated the land for it and the cemetery along the Stemlersville road. Jacob Bowman, a mill and store operator, donated sum of $700 for the construction of the church."
