|Mt. Woods Cemetery is locally significant and eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion C: Landscape Architecture, as an excellent example of the rural cemetery movement, and under Criterion C: Art, for its collection of locally significant examples of antebellum, Victorian-era , and early to mid-20th century funerary art, design and commemoration. Since its primary significance is attained from distinctive design features, Mt. Woods Cemetery also meets Criteria Consideration A : Religious Properties, since a portion of the cemetery is owned by a religious institution, and Criteria Consideration D: Cemeteries. The period of significance begins in 1831 with its first interment when it was part of the Woods family cemetery, and ends c.1950, reflecting the period when new interments, and thus the erection of funerary art, waned significantly.
