Cemetery notes and/or description:
From the cemetery's plaque:

The Mennonite Zion Church

The first Mennonite settlers arrived in the Arena community in 1904 from Marion, South Dakota. Initial church services were held in the sod home of Jacob Ensz. In 1908 a church and Sunday school was formally established. Meetings were later held in the Harriet and Lein schools until 1925 when the Arena wooden school building was purchased and moved to this land donated by Jacob Ensz. The church was dedicated and a constitution presented and accepted on July 30, 1925. The church served the German and English community until it was closed in 1985.

The Mennonite Zion Cemetery

The Mennonite Association Cemetery was established on July 18, 1910. Mr. George A. and Mrs. Maggie Schmidt donated this half-acre of land. A young child was the first burial in 1904. A reorganizational meeting on May 2, 1999, formed the Mennonite Zion Cemetery Association.
