Located on Old Salem Road between Excelsior Springs and Lawson, MO.
It was among the earliest churches in Clay County with the first burial in 1830 and the first headstone placed in 1834.
First called New Light Christian, for years the cemetery was the only burial place in the area, except for family plots; and as many as 200 graves went unmarked because the decedents' families were unable to afford a marker. There are more than 30 veterans as well as 11 ministers buried in the cemetery.
