Settlement in this area began shortly after Fort Graham, a frontier military post established here in 1849, was abandoned in 1853. The first recorded burial in this cemetery, named after the fort, was that of infant Charley Botkin in 1879. The Cemetery was the only one of a number of historic graveyards in this area to remain undisturbed by the creation of Lake Whitney in the early 1950s. Among the more than 300 people buried here are many of the area's early settlers and descendents. The cemetery remains active and is maintained by an association formed in 1966.

Sesquicentennial of Texas Statehood 1845-1995 Stone inside the gate says:

“In Memory of the unknown and unmarked who lie here. Courtesy of the American Legion Post 522”
