In 1894 land was donated by Ann and C.Y. Kouns for the cemetery to build a Confederate Park that would be used by the local United Confederate Veterans. In 1922 'The Confederate Memorial Park Committee' was established with the intention to create a memorial to the Confederate soldiers buried in the cemetery. The archway was designed at an angle so that a Confederate Battle Flag design could be formed in the grounds. Construction was complete in 1922, however the flag design was never implemented.
