Location:  In Manchester on the south side of W. Nimisila Road, west of the intersection of W. Nimisila Road and Manchester Road.

History:  "The oldest section of this cemetery was donated by Mr. Jacob Balmer for the burial of his wife, in 1815. Mrs. Balmer had passed away after having been bitten by a rattlesnake. In the years since, the City has acquired several adjacent properties in an effort to enlarge the cemetery. The most recent addition is the former site of the original Lutheran Church – one of our earliest landmarks – built in 1880, and lost to a fire in 1992."
