Linden Hill United Methodist Cemetery was founded by English-speaking Methodists in 1842. The Second Street Methodist Episcopal Church was located on 2nd Street between Avenues C and D in Manhattan, NY. It was then acquired by German-speaking Methodists in 1852, who were located at The First German Methodist Episcopal Mission Church on 2nd Street between Avenues B and C.
The First German Methodist Episcopal Church later moved to 48 St. Marks Place, Manhattan, NY, where it remained until its closing on July 1, 1975. The Cemetery then became the property of the Bishop of NY and the Superintendents of the New York Annual Conference with churches in NY City.
