The Chariton Cemetery Company was incorporated in 1864 as a private cemetery. It was sold to the city for.000 in 1924. That same year they hired Des Moines landscape architect Ray F. Wyrick to plan the landscaping and for future expansion. The plan he came up with was the rural cemetery concept. He replaced its formal garden design with curving roadways and waterways that reflected its natural setting. Babyland for infant burials was created in 1930. He also designed the north entrance gate, which was built with Works Progress Administration funds in 1937. Wyrick continued to work with the cemetery into the 1960s.

English cottage style house was built in 1929 as a holiday home / Church. It was designed and built by local contractor E. H. best. It offers a brick exterior finish with stucco and half-timbered gable. Its exposed ends of the rafters are elements of the American style of the master. Wyricks gates use the same style. Building repairs are not troops, buildings.
