    The community cemetery dates to the 1870s, when Lovelady was developing as a railroad center for the surrounding agricultural area. Land for the section known as the old cemetery was conveyed to trustees of the Lovelady Cemetery Association in 1878 and in 1896. The first grave, that of Parham Bridges Baker (b. 1876) is dated 1878. Another early grave is that of Catherine Adams, who also was buried that year. By 1885 there were approximately 20 graves in the cemetery. A good example of an early community graveyard, it is maintained by the Lovelady Evergreen Cemetery Association.
