This rural cemetery has minimal care and is in fair shape.  It appears that only about half of the cemetery was used for burials. This rural cemetery is one of two cemeteries that belong to the St. Nickolas Catholic Church congregation in Carver, Minnesota.  The other St. Nicholas Catholic Church Cemetery will be listed as a separate cemetery and included with the City of Carver's cemeteries.  

In "History of the Minnesota Valley" [1882] by Rev. Edward D. Neill, he wrote: ‘... A Catholic Cemetery containing one acre was established in 1869 in section 24, near the town line. An adopted child of Jacob Buche, buried that year, was the first burial.’ (page 382).

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 Catholic cemetery, on the east line of the township, in section 24, was dedicated and consecrated in 1869.  The first burial therein was that of an adopted child of Jacob Busche." (page 237).

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