The Indianola Cemetery is the main cemetery of three in this area and is located near the intersection of Powderhorn and Orleans St. There are close to 70 marked graves. Some of the residents here were victims of disease, including yellow fever, and hurricanes that ravaged this coastal city in the 1800s. Many of the residents that perished in the hurricanes were not found and those that were, were buried in mass graves elsewhere.

"During the Civil War, Union troops occupied Indianola. 110 soldiers who died while at Indianola were buried here, then later exhumed after the war and buried in the Brownsville National Cemetery. In 1909, the Brownsville Cemetery was closed and the remains were relocated to Pineville, Arkansas. U.S. Soldiers that died in the Indianola/Matagorda Island area were likely victims of disease and natural causes."
