DARNELL CEMETERY
This cemetery is on Northpoint Training Center (State Prison) property which is 5 miles north of Danville, Kentucky, off Ky Hwy 33, Shakertown Road (North Third Street).
During world War II, this was Darnell General Hospital, a Federal facility which was later sold to the State of Kentucky and converted to a State Mental Hospital. It was briefly Danville Youth Devopment Center, a juvenile detention center. The 1940 Census calls it a Reformatory.
A Cremation Oven stood near the grave yard at least until 1982 when it became a state prison.
There are only two burial sites with graves identified by names with two dates.
WWII German Prisoners were housed here but it is unknown if any of the graves are German Soldiers.


Records for this cemetery are found in the book Boyle County, Kentucky, Cemetery Records, 1792-1992, compiled by the Boyle County Genealogical Association, 1992, revised and enlarged 2008.
