The fenced area within the cemetery is known as Confederate Home Cemetery and contains the graves of Confederate soldiers and their spouses. Surrounding the fenced area are the graves of State Hospital patients.

The South Carolina Confederate Soldiers' Home was previously located in front of the cemetery on the corner of Confederate Avenue and Bull Street. The Home opened in 1909 and was built on land owned by the State Hospital. The Home was closed in 1958.

Most of the graves for State Hospital patients are only marked with plot numbers.

As of November 13, 2013, all of the gravemarkers with names have been photographed and added to Find A Grave.
