This site is also referred to as the County Farm Cemetery (or County Poor Farm Cemetery). Its location is not presently known.

The 1920 federal census of Lee County shows the Alms Houses located in Precinct 2, Opelika. The households enumerated before them are along the Opelika-West Point Highway, and the households enumerated after them on the Opelika-Oak Bowery Road. The precise location of the cemetery is not known, and it may be that none of the graves are now marked. [It is worth noting that the cemetery that served the Muscogee County Alms House in Georgia was lost and the graves not re-discovered until ground was broken for the construction of the chapel for the West Central Georgia Regional Hospital, at which time the crew encountered unmarked graves. Over 100 graves were moved to another location on the WCGRH grounds.]
