|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Historically, the cemetery was established by a Methodist congregation in 1873. The Duluth Methodist Church was built on top of the hill, on Main St., on the south end of town. The cemetery adjoined the Methodist church property along the cemetery's northern boundary. The Baptists built their church in 1886, and it was located about 300 yards north, on W. Lawrenceville St. The Methodists were laid to rest on the northern half of the cemetery, and the Baptists on the southern half. Both congregations eventually sold their church properties and built new structures on SR 120. The next owner of the Duluth Methodist Church was the Duluth Masonic Lodge. The Lodge owned this property until it was appropriated by the City of Duluth for the site of its new city hall. The Duluth City Hall now stands at the original Methodist church site, and the former Masonic Lodge/old Duluth Methodist Church building was moved to its present location on Hardy St, across from the cemetery's south gate. The brick and wrought iron fencing are not original and were built in conjunction with the new city hall.
