Cherryville Baptist Church was founded in 1849. Cherryville Mountainview Cemetery opened the following year in 1850 with 3 interments. The original size of the cemetery was about 1.5 acres in size. A fieldstone wall was constructed on the south and west sides of the cemetery and a wrought iron fence was installed on the east side. Sometime before 1940 the church and the cemetery split and became two separate entities, a non-profit association was formed to oversee the cemeteries operations. In 1941 the cemetery was enlarged another 1.5 acres and the wall and fence were also expanded. In the early 1970's the fence was removed and the sign was moved from over the driveway to its current location. Trucks were getting bigger and could no longer fit under the sign. Cemetery association president Larry Van Wyck purchased an additional 3.5 acres of land behind the cemetery and donated it to the cemetery in memory of his wife Elsie Van Wyck on Dec. 20, 2006.
