St. Mark's Evangelical Church was established at Booneville in 1862.  A church was built and a cemetery laid out on the adjoining lot.  It is said that David and Catharine Mark gave the land for the church, which probably influenced the naming after St. Mark from the Bible.  The church thrived over the next few decades, but the 1894 split in the Evangelical Church severely hurt St. Mark's.  St. Mark's remained on the Esher side of the split, which was the majority nationwide, but in Sugar Valley most sympathies were with the Dubbs side of the split.  As a result, many families left St. Mark's and formed Trinity United Evangelical Church down the road, at Greenburr.

St. Mark's gradually declined and when the Esher and Dubbs sides came together in 1922, it closed and the members went to Greenburr.  The building was sold on 20 July 1929 to the Greenburr band for $135.00 and was rebuilt as the band hall there.

Booneville Cemetery Association was formed to maintain the cemetery.  It is in an excellent condition, and has received a handful of burials over the past seventy years.
