Seeing the need for an additional cemetery, community leaders, Paul Anderson, Matthew Hathecock, George Shepard Sr., and Zachariah Stewart donated funds to purchase 1 acre of land, north of, and adjacent to the Lost Creek Baptist Church, from Dixon Stewart Jr., in 1923. Additionally, Dixon Stewart Jr. graciously donated a second acre for the cemetery, and in 1945 an additional acre was purchased. The cemetery was named the Stewart Hill Cemetery. The first burial there was the infant son of Paul and Lucille Anderson in 1924. The first adult burial was that of Coleman Redmon, later in that same month. The cemetery was used initially for the burial of members of the Lost Creek Baptist Church, but later on was used for the burial of any county resident.
In 2017, the cemetery land title still bears the name of the Stewart Hill Cemetery, but it is commonly know as "The Stewart Lawn Cemetery".
