A deed dated August 4, 1868, a Mr. Richard Boulware conveyed five acres of land located just west of the Town of Orange and on the Orange to Montpelier road to Alexander Daley, E.W. Rowe and W.G. Williams to hold the same in trust and to administer it as a graveyard. A Mr. David Graham contributed the purchase price of the land, which act is thought to be why the cemetery was named Graham Cemetery.

Although the cemetery was not deeded into existence until after the Civil War, the land was used for burying soldiers who died in the Orange Court House General Hospital during the first years of that conflict. After the war, the cemetery became formerly established. In addition to the Confederate burials, a number of graves of individuals who died before the cemetery was founded, were re-interred in Graham Cemetery, most being small family cemeteries, they were moved due to the selling of property.
