Cedar Grove Cemetery was established in 1831 as the first secular cemetery by the Town of Portsmouth. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992. The four-acre parcel cost $400.00 and was sectioned into 167 plots which sold for about $20.00 each. Among the first to be buried here were the victims of the local cholera epidemic of 1832.Also buried here are many early leaders of Portsmouth, most of whom lived and worked nearby in the area of the city now known as Olde Towne.

Cedar Grove interred a number of veterans beginning with the Revolutionary War through World War II. Most of the veterans, however, are from the Civil War and are memorialized in the Confederate section.
