Burials in this cemetery, which served Cahaba from 1848 to 1900, tell a story of the town in which many deaths resulted from diseases of infancy, childhood and early adult life, Yellow Fever being a large factor because of proximity to Gulf of Mexico ports, Cahaba had many plagues, brought in by a constantly changing population. The famous Bell Monument is in this cemetery.

Erected by Cahaba Historical Commission.
