In 1741 a log building was the first church built. It was referred to as "Schmaltzgass Church," "the Little Lehigh Church," or the "Maguntsche Church (Macungie Church)," and served the Lutheran and Reformed families in this area. Today it continues as a shared ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran and United Church of Christ faiths.

The oldest burials dating from the 1700’s and early 1800’s are in the Old Section immediately next to the church in an area shaded by many large evergreen trees and populated with many Revolutionary War and War of 1812 veterans. A large stone monument was erected for the Native Americans buried in the cemetery in the 1700’s. Grave markers in this section face east-north-east.

The newer sections are across the road from the church. Generally speaking the older burials are nearest the church while the newer burials are the farthest. With some exceptions grave markers in the newer sections face both east and west, very often randomly and within the same row.
