Unionville Cemetery is located about 1/2 mile east of Unionville on the main and only street in the town. There approximately 37 legible memorials, most likely more, as many old memorials are wood and unreadable.

This cemetery dates back 1870's when Unionville was a mining town. The cemetery is still in use. A marker at the cemetery reads "In memory of all departed brothers of the I.O.O.F. who rest eternally in this hallowed ground".

Unionville is a small hamlet in Pershing County, Nevada, located south of I-80 and just west of State Route 400 on Unionville Road, with the most recent population estimate being approximately 20 people. The town's best years were during the 1870s, when it was an active mining and prospecting town serving the surrounding hilly region. For a brief time, Samuel Langhorne Clemens lived there and prospected, but left without having had much success.

Currently, the hamlet consists of a single business – a tourist inn – and a few small houses clustered along or near the gravel roadway which permits vehicular ingress and egress. The nearest paved road, an extension of this gravel road, is about 7 miles to the east. The nearest services of any sort, other than those available at the inn, are approximately one hour's drive away.
