The church was organized in 1890 and the cemetery was established at that time. Seven acres of property were purchased that year from the Northern Pacific Railway. The deed shows that $12.50 was paid for the property. Another acre was purchased in 1907 from Maurice Hanson for $1.00. The church building was dismantled in 1948.

In 1986, a memorial stone was erected with names of charter members
of the church on one side and a drawing and brief history of the church on the other side.

The cemetery was registered with the State of North Dakota in 1989.

The following surnames are listed on the above cemetery memorial stone:
Alfson, Anderson, Benzon, Bill, Bolin, Fredrickson, Hanson, Hult, Jacobson, Johns, Levin, Malmquist, Martinson, Melander, Nelson, Olson, Pehrson, Person, Peterson, Sundquist, Swenson
