This burial ground is located on the site where the first Swedish Methodist church in the Brushy Creek area was located. In the early 1870s, Swedish immigrants began to settle in this area and by the early 1880s, Pastor C.C. Charmquist and residents established a church and cemetery here. The earliest known burial is of an infant, dating to 1881. In 1906, the congregation moved and was ultimately named St. John's United Methodist Church. In 1984, the St. John's Cemetery Association began to maintain the burial ground, though the graveyard continued to be closely related to the church. Early pioneers, community leaders and veterans of military conflicts dating to World War I are among those interred here.
