This Roman Catholic cemetery is located on the south side of E Washington Avenue (Michigan State Highway M-32) about 0.3 miles east of its intersection with S Bagley Street. The cemetery is across E Washington Avenue from the Evergreen Cemetery. The first Catholic Cemetery was located on S 11th Street. The site was purchased in June 1867. Land for a new Catholic Cemetery was purchased in November 1886, and the cemetery was formally consecrated on 1 August 1887. Bodies were moved from the original location to the current location in 1887. The cemetery was originally called the Catholic Cemetery. However, on 5 August 1921, the name was changed from Catholic Cemetery to Holy Cross Cemetery.
