The cemetery consists of 11 acres with burials dating back to before 1835. Many of those interred here include early pioneers who contributed to the growth and development of Boonville. The cemetery was originally platted as the "Methodist Cemetery." In 1844, ownership transferred to the City. The cemetery closed to burial lot sales in 1985; burials are allowed in family owed lots.
