Traditional history says this cemetery was established in 1838 by the Smyrna Methodist Church. However, Wylie Flannigan of Campbell County, Ga. took title to Land Lot 522 in which the cemetery is located, on July 1, 1843 after paying Georgia $5.00 for the 40 acre lot distributed in the 1832 Land Lottery. The first marked grave is the one for Elijah Fleming who died April 8, 1848.

The earliest deed found involving this property is one from Hardy Pace to the Methodist Church dated in 1915 replacing one dated in 1846 which is said to have been destroyed in the War Between the States. The church sold lots for $10.00 and gave deeds to the owners. The church deeded the cemetery to the City of Smyrna in 1959.
