The north line of Longview Cemetery is the north line of Harrison County. Carroll County is on the other side.
Before Longview Cemetery, it was known as the German Lutheran Church Cemetery in 1889 located in the Village of Bowerton, Harrison County, Ohio. John Easterday donated part of his land for the uses of the cemetery.
In 1919 the cemetery was turn over the Monroe Township Trustees and then to the Village of Bowerston. The cemetery is maintained and operated by the Village of Bowerston today. The condition of the cemetery is good.
