Established as a cemetery in 1869 in accordance with the will of John Eshelman, who bought the estate from William Walker on April 8, 1836. The graveyard is approximately 400 feet north of the Walker house. The cemetery is surrounded by an iron fence manufactured in 1896 by the Potts Manufacturing Company, Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.

In 1869 the property was deeded to Nancy Eshelman Gibble, eldest daughter of John and Catharine Eshelman, with the exception of a 50 square foot plot to be used as the burial ground for the Eshelman family. Joseph Eshelman's tombstone inscription is in German.
