|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The West Main Street Cemetery (a.k.a. Old Albertville Cemetery) is located on West Main Street, just outside downtown Albertville. It has rows of white marble and granite headstones, and its graves date back to the early 1800's. The gravesites of Thomas Albert, the founder of Albertville, and his family are located here along with many other pioneers of the city.
It is unknown just how many of the graves are simply marked by a brick or fieldstone, half-hidden by the overgrown grass. As the first highway cut through the area, road crews laid the road to curve around the cemetery. People in town didn't want the graveyard to be disturbed, and the highway workers honored their wishes.
There are no lots available in this cemetery.
