Inscription.  

Also known as Prairie Dell Cemetery, this burial ground has served eastern Hemphill county since 1895, when Dora Calhoun, an infant, was interred here. George W. Little, a landowner in the then-thriving Eller Flat community, donated property for her gravesite. Charles H. and Jesse Rutter purchased Little’s land in 1905, and continued to allow community residents to use the burial ground. In 1912, the Eller Flat Cemetery Association purchased this property, which contained about 35 graves. By 1917, residents built Prairie Dell School (0.7 mi. W), which became associated with the cemetery. Today, Eller Flat (Prairie Dell) Cemetery continues to serve area residents.
