The caretaker's lodge was constructed in 1901 in the Shingles Style as a 3 story tall structure with brick and shingle. The iron fence around the cemetery is from the same era. Several other nearby structures make up the historical district, including a school and several houses.
During the Civil War, the district's height made it a good position to set up lookout points, so it saw a great deal of troop movement. The district remains relatively undeveloped to this day. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
