This cemetery, formally known as "Jakes Hill" consists of 5.12 acres which were purchased by Annisquam Village members as a burial ground in 1848. The first person buried was David Lane who died in 1848.

The name Adnah was selected because the Hebrew translation means "rest or testimony eternal". The Cemetery was incorporated in 1860 and in 1890 the Annisquam & Bay View Civil War monument was dedicated to the Bay View and Annisquam men who served in the Civil War from 1861-1865. Nine men from Bay View lost their lives in the Civil War and their names are inscribed on the monument. This is a privately owned cemetery.
