On land originally owned by Hughes Owen Taylor, which was acquired upon his death in 1852 by his daughter, Alice Elizabeth Taylor Meek, Meek Cemetery began in the 1870's as the Meek family burying ground, adjoining the older County Line Cemetery. Around the turn of the century, more burials in the County Line community began occurring in the newer Meek Cemetery, and neighboring County Line Cemetery became abandoned. When the Meek family sold the property, the 1940 deed stipulated that the cemetery remain available as a burying ground for the community. TVA reinterred nine graves here during the creation of Cherokee Lake. Meek Cemetery is active and maintained; most graves are marked but there are several uninscribed fieldstones.
