Brief History:

 

The site of the Plantersville Cemetery was used as early as 1864.  In 1866, landowner and Plantersville Postmaster Peter W. Walton donated the land to the community for use as a cemetery.  It was enlarged in 1911 and 1958.  The cemetery has two iron-fence enclosures and a number of marked graves that are over 100 years old.
