This rural cemetery has regular care and is in good shape. The cemetery burial rows are long, but not in a straight line and the eastern most rows have sort of a curve from the northeast to the southwest. The far south end does not appear to have any burials. There is not a church at this location. 

The Dakota county cemetery records compilation lists this cemetery as Hillcrest German Baptist Cemetery, established 1857. 2 acres. Located Section 20, NE 1/4. Lewiston Blvd.

In "History of Dakota County and the city of Hastings" by Rev. Edward D. Neill, he wrote: '... The German Baptist cemetery is located on section 20, on land owned by the Otte brothers. August Otte, who died in 1857, was the first person buried here.'

This cemetery was transcribed in 1996.
