Also known as Olivenhain Pioneer Cemetery. Although the address for this cemetery is 4329 Manchester Avenue, it is not accessible or visible from that point. A sign located next to the mailbox for that address indicates that access is from Colony Terrace, which is the next street to the south. Proceeding uphill on Colony Terrace, access to the cemetery is on the left, marked by a sign and behind a white gate along a private driveway. Do not block the gate or the driveway as this provides access to several private residences located just beyond the cemetery. An area for parking is located just inside the gate on the right, as visible in the photo.

The first burial in the Olivenhain Cemetery was in 1891. It is a one and nine-tenths acre cemetery owned and maintained primarily by the descendants of the original settlers of the Olivenhain community. For eighty years the cemetery was managed by volunteer help. The land deed was held in trust by the Denk and Wiro families and passed from father to son for three generations. In 1971, the Olivenhain Cemetery Council was formed and incorporated. Due to the limited amount of usable land in the cemetery, all future sites are reserved for direct descendants and immediate families of those already buried.
