This cemetery is located on the n.e. corner of the intersection of Bainbridge Center Road and North Branch Road. There was a church on the property and it has had several names over the years: Brick Church, Indiana Conference of Evangelical Association (1853), Evangelical Ecclesiatical Church (1880), Zion Evangelical United Brethren (1953), and the last New Hope United Methodist Church. The church was destroyed by arson. The Cemetery sits just north of the church property. It is well maintained, markers are all in their intended positions.
