Novelty Cemetery dates back to 1901 when a five acre piece of land was donated by a local resident. A sign at the cemetery entrance says it was established in 1902.
It replaced the historic Pioneer Cemetery that is located at the Dougherty Farmstead Museum in Duvall. That cemetery had to be closed due to the multitude of springs on the hillside. Many war veterans, mayors and other prominent Duvall residents are buried in the Novelty Cemetery.
The oldest marked grave was from 1889 and the cemetery is still actively used.
