|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Jackson County Home started as the Jackson County Poor Farm in March, 1852. In July 1908, it became the Jackson County Home for the indigent sick. Then in 1937 an addition was added and it became a rural emergency hospital. New additions have been added and the complex is now the Truman Medical Center Lakewood. It is located on the southwest corner of Little Blue and Lee's Summit Road with the address being 7900 Lee's Summit Road, Kansas City, Missouri. The original building that was the Jackson County Home is still present and being used as a long term care facility. What is not present is the cemetery that was used for the home. An overgrown, weed infested area is all that is left. Up until 1924, most of the burials were at this cemetery. After that most bodies were donated to medical science with a very few going to private cemeteries.
