This cemetery has regular care and is in great shape. The church and cemetery are situated in a rural area within the city limits of Victoria, Minnesota. Most of the burials are located in the western sections of this cemetery. There is a burial list posted at the entrance to the cemetery; the list contains names, year of birth and year of death for those buried in the cemetery.

In the 1915 "Compendium of History and Biography of Carver and Hennepin Counties, Minnesota", edited by Maj. R.I. Holcombe and William H. Bingham, they wrote: ‘Laketown Moravian Church was organized 31 October 1858, at the house of John Holtmeier (section 11, near Lake Auburn) by Rev. Martin Erdmann, the noted Moravian missionary and evangelist. ... The church has a cemetery in connection, and the first person buried in it was Mrs. Frederick Klatt, who died in May, 1861.'

This cemeteries burial monuments were transcribed during the spring of 2000.
