Long Description:
Marked by a nice monument and a chain linked fence, this cemetery marks the place where the County Home use to bury its dead. Out of the 349 recorded interments in this plot, nearly 40 of those buried are unknown. Many of the graves are marked with a simple metal plate with very few grave stones on the property. There is also a large portion of the property with no grave markers. The first interment was in 1894 and though one source states that this cemetery is active, there has not been a burial here since 2005. To get to the cemetery drive on Garland Street East and go down the dirt road when the road ends. It is on the North side of the dirt drive.
