A stroll through the town cemetery finds many old grave markers of Civil War soldiers and others honoring our beloved  ancestors, relatives, pastors, and friends.  Burial dates start from 1811.   The northwest corner of the cemetery is where the first town hall  and “free” house was built.  It was here that town and community meetings and church services were held.
