The graveyard was created in 1904 when F.W. Bartlett offered the local Odd Fellows lodge a three acre plot of land. At that time the land had already been used for burials 1886. This transfer of property is how the cemetery got it's name.
In 1904, the Independent Order of Odd Fellows (I.O.O.F.) set the price of its cemetery plots at fifteen dollars for a single plot and a family rate of fifty dollars for eight plots.
There are many members of the community intered at this cemetery whom have been instrumental in creating this town. The train station, school, the water district, churches and much more.
