| G. W. Eliot donated land at this site for a school, Methodist church, parsonage, and graveyard. Burials in the cemetery began about 1881. The Doolen, Duncan, Eliot, Humphries, Metcalf, Rakestraw, Smith, Stokes, Wimberly, and other families lived in the area at that time. The school consolidated with Navarro in 1928 and the building was relocated. The church meetinghouse was destroyed by fire in 1975. The next year a steel tabernacle was erected. It serves as the location for the annual memorial services of the Grape Creek Cemetery Association. |
