The fenced portion of Old St. Joseph Cemetery constitutes only a small part of the original burial ground of the city of Old St. Joseph (1835-1841). Mass burial sites of yellow fever victims lie in unmarked graves.

The surrounding area was used by some of the earlier (1904-1940) residents of the present city of Port St. Joe. Most of the graves of both eras are unmarked.

A new cemetery was established in 1957.
Erected 1982 by St. Joseph Historical Society.
