Search Center Star Cemetery:

Center Star Cemetery is located on the Wheeler Wildlife Refuge. Tucked into a small section of land outside of Mooresville, Alabama between the interstate and the Tennessee River is some farm land that once used to be a booming port for shipping goods.

All that remains of Cottonport, Alabama is a small historical marker denoting the existence of the town. The old cemetery was sold to the highest bidder. Buildings disappeared or were moved. All that remains is the thought of it.

CenterStar Cemetery was once over 1500 graves before the TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) claimed the land it resided on. Now, gated and locked, vastly overgrown and forgotten, only a handful of the stones now exist although hundreds and hundreds of sunken graves are visible as you travel through the dense underbrush.

Unfortunately over time, the Tennessee River has also washed away many graves during flooding seasons.
