The cemetery was established by the Stephenson Family in the early 19th Century. It was known as the Burleson Cemetery during most of the 20th century. The cemetery has approximately 36 graves with the earliest graves opened in the 1830's and the latest burials were in the 1920's. The first recorded interment was 1835 and the last was in the 1920s.



There is a well established ornamental groundcover consisting of vinca and ivy and many very old English boxwoods. The cedars are very old and near the end of their life span. One priority is to preserve young cedars to replace the older ones. The cemetery is enclosed by an iron fence with a concrete base. The fence is in good shape and combined with the monuments represent very distinctive historical architectural features. The cemetery includes several box type tombs and substantial monuments. The grave arrangement fit the traditional east - west burial pattern of the period. The cemetery also possesses examples of familial cluster burials. (Information courtesy of Dan Burleson.)



Directions: From Beltline Road, take Danville Road south. The cemetery is located north of the intersection of Modaus and Danville Roads on the east side of Danville Road.
