It is listed in the inventory of historic monuments. Originally, the Mennonites buried their dead in their gardens. Those of Salm chose land from the 19th century onwards to receive the burials, the location of which is now marked by steles with particular shapes and decorations, a simple engraved heart. Unlike that of Bourg-Bruche, this cemetery is no longer used. It is located on private property, not accessible to the public. It is generally visitable during heritage days in September.
