"On April 7, 1862, a resolution was adopted by the city council to purchase 10 acres of ground for a city cemetery. In December of that year it was given the name of Dodge Grove. It formally opened in the spring of 1863.

Since the cemetery developed during the time of the civil war, designated areas were assigned for soldiers of that era. This tradition carried on for other eras as well, making the cemetery rich in history. Dodge Grove continues to grow. It consists of 60 acres and appoximately 20,000 burials (as of 2004)"
