Allentown Methodist Cemetery is owned by Allentown United Methodist Church on Church St. in Allentown.
Allentown United Methodist Church was officially established in 1810, though Methodist sermons were being performed in Allentown as early as 1790. The present-day location at 23 Church St. began in 1832. However, the present-day building was erected in 1859.
Originally burials were performed on church grounds, surrounding the church building. As the congregation grew, more land was needed to expand the church building.
On March 9, 1880, the church bought land for a cemetery on the corner of Broad St and Hamilton St (the present-day cemetery). All of the graves surrounded the church building were removed to the new cemetery.
