Travel 3 miles south of Hubbard on Highway #65, then 1/4 mile west, and on the south side of the gravel road are a few gravestones. In 1878, an acre of ground was purcchased of Z.L. MARTIN for this cemetery, and the first interment was August 6, 1879.

The town of Idaho had approximately two dozen buildings when the railroad came through Tipton township soon after 1880.  It was then that the town of Hubbard sprang up along the railroad and the building from Idaho were moved to Hubbard. A post office was established on section 17 of Grant township in 1876 called Idaho and it was discontinued in 1880. This cemetery was abandoned when the town of Idaho was discontinued.
