1913: E. Blum opened a nursery on land leased from the Jewish Cemetery. Later, O.M. Barnage and James Haley operated nurseries there until the cemetery expanded. 1858: Charles Schraeder, Theodore Schaedel and Christian Baden built the Episcopal Church and layed out the cemetery. However, some graves date as early as 1824. Wood for the project was donated by Major Huie. The church was dedicated by Bishop Leondis Polk, who later left the parish to serve as a Confederate General. The church was used as a hospital during the War Between the States. 1947: Presentation of the parish house adjunct to Mt. Olivet was made by Dr. Fayette C. Ewing and wife Rowen Clarke Ewing, in memory of his sister, Leila Wills Ewing.
