Cemetery is enclosed by a chain-link fence. The cemetery is well maintained.
According to a sign at the entrance, this cemetery was established in 1800 and closed in 1885. Reubin Thompson, whose remains are buried here, founded Ebenezer Methodist Church (then named Green Leaf Log Church) in the 1790's.
