In 1829, first settler John Bell donated two acres from his original grant and deeded it for use as a community burial ground. In acknowledgement, the cemetery was named Bell Gift.

Incorporated in 1860 but no records were kept until 1877. There is however, a chart drafted by Robert Byers that shows the first listed burial as 'Boy Wilson, age 10, 1820'.
