History

The Centerville City Cemetery has been in use since the Mormon pioneers first settled the area in 1847, although the first recorded burial was in 1851. In the early days, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints owned and operated the cemetery, but ownership was eventually transferred to the city of Centerville.

The most notable "resident" of the cemetery is B. H. Roberts, a well-known Latter-day Saint Historian.
