Inscription.  The Valley Grove Cemetery Association was organized Jan. 1, 1876.

The original officers were - John Wallace, President     B. F. Beeson, Secretary     John W. Ferguson, Treasurer

The Valley Grove Church was completed on this site, November 1885 – its primary purpose was to provide accommodations for funerals, there were occasions when community Sunday School was held. No religious denomination was associated with the Church building. Upon serving many years for its intended purpose, the building was retired March 1990 and it is buried on the original site. This memorial is not only to remember the Church building which stood on this site, but is in dedication and memory to those who are at rest on these grounds.
