This make-shift cemetery was part of the 19th Regiment Massachusetts camp ground during the Civil War. Three soldiers died there in between August and October 1861, though two were disinterred and brought back to Massachusetts. The lone burial is Rufus A. Peck who died when a wooden beam fell on his head while he was preparing the troop's meal. He was buried on September 24th, 1861.

The property is now owned by Glenstone Museum.
