Also Known as the Quarry Street or Pioneer Cemetery

Marion founder Eber Baker donated this two-acre plot for use as a
cemetery shortly after platting the village in 1822. The oldest
legible headstone bears an 1812 burial date, indicating that it may
have been moved to the site after the opening of the cemetery.
While complete records are not available, approximately 200 burials
took place in the cemetery with the final one believed to have
occurred in 1872. Many of the 65 victims of an 1854 cholera
outbreak were buried here. The cemetery's location next to an
active railroad, combined with unfavorable soil conditions, eventually
created a need for relocation. This led to the establishment of
a cemetery on Delaware Avenue that opened in 1858. Many of
the original interments were subsequently moved to the new
Marion Cemetery.
