This rural cemetery is maintained on a regular basis and is in good shape. The cemetery is located near the south side of highway 212 about one and one half miles west of the city of Chaska, Minnesota. There is no church at this location. The cemetery is still being used.

In "History of the Minnesota Valley" [1882] by Rev. Edward D. Neill, he wrote: ‘... Lutheran - Services were conducted at the house of Michael Preiss, in section 14, as early as 1857, continuing for several years irregularly. ... The Lutheran Cemetery was established in the north-west quarter of section 14 in 1857. Katie Preiss, whose death has been mentioned, was the first buried here.’ (page 382). ‘Among the first deaths were those of Katie Preiss and Michael Eichelmiller; the former occurred 28 October 1857, and the latter soon after.’ (page 381).

In the "Compendium of History and Biography of Carver and Hennepin Counties, Minnesota" [1915] edited by Maj. R.I. Holcombe and William H. Bingham, t hey wrote:  "A Lutheran congregation was formed and services held at the house of Michael Preiss, in section 14, as early as in 1857 and continued for several years, although irregularly." (page 237). 

This cemeteries burial monuments were transcribed during the spring of 1998.
