History:
The German Evangelical Association of Highland Township established the Church and the cemetery at this location. It was named Highland Cemetery in honor of the township in which it was located, being the only cemetery in Highland township. The Church building was eventually built, and the Church later became Trinity UCC. Although the Church still owns and maintains the cemetery, the cemetery retains the name Highland. In some obituaries, however, it is referred to as the Highland Evangelical Cemetery or the Trinity Church Cemetery.

There is a burial locator board on site. The cemetery is very well maintained.
