Cemetery notes and/or description:
This burial site is located behind the UW Extension Building. It served as a final resting place for residents of the county poor farm and county asylum from 1856 through 1950. The area has been restored and records are kept by the Jefferson County Land and Water Conservation Department. Additional records are kept by the Dodge-Jefferson Genealogical Society.

There is a cemetery monument and an informational kiosk at the main burial site. A limited number of individual markers remain - but they contain only the grave number.

Some of the death dates given here may in fact be burial dates. In addition, some duplicates in the grave numbers may be noticed. Those are either cases where a grave was used for more than one body, or may be the result of having more than one burial site on the property.

It is believed that other individuals were buried here whose names have presumably been lost to history.
