According to ESJF European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative, the exact period of the cemetery’s foundation is unknown, but it can be inferred from the dates on the tombstones that it was established in the early 20th century. It first appears on a Russian map from 1904. The cemetery was also mentioned in Yizkor memorial book of Stepan’ issued in 1977 and marked on its map. The cemetery is surrounded by a 1.5 metre tall metal mesh fence. The fence is rusty and destroyed in places. Some of the concrete pillars have been replaced with wooden ones. There are 23 gravestones.

Date of oldest tombstone: 1919
Date of newest tombstone: 1936
