This village cemetery is located on the east side of what is now called Veteran's Memorial Parkway, formerly called South Street, in Lee Center. The earliest stone is dated 1810, that of Eunice Park, one of Lee Center's early settlers. James Young, another early settler, and his wife are buried here, as are many other pioneers of the town of Lee.
This cemetery is well maintained but storms over the years have caused damage to several of the tombstones. There are no known record of burials for this cemetery.
