In 1883, the city fathers had the land surveyed and established the cemetery. The cemetery contained an area of forty-three acres and was purchased from Lewis Slimmer for the sum of $1,000.00. It is owned and operated by the city and has had excellent care through the years. Prominent features at the cemetery include the Perrin oblish and Root-Slimmer mausoleum in the center of the original cemetery. The first person buried in these grounds was Daniel, a son of Dr. A.F.
Tichenor on April 3,1878. His death occurred before the grounds were platted.
