Inscription.  These grounds hold the graves of pioneer settlers in the Capay Valley and Lamb Valley and those of Esparto's early families. Established in 1876 by the trustees of Capay Lodge No.230 Independent Order of Odd Fellows. It was the first public cemetery serving Capay Valley.

In 1893, the cemetery grew when Bill and Doc Duncan sold five acres to the trustees, enlarging the original six-acre site purchased from Jessie Aldrich and B.F. Cross. In 1894, two and two-thirds acres of Maria Hoppin land rounded out the cemetery.
