History: This cemetery was the first place of burials in Dawson County. It's features include a good three foot high stone wall and front entrance gate, and a concrete sidewalk leading to a monument and historical marker. Unfortunately, the town has not seen fit to keep it clean and well maintained, very few markers exist, no grass of any kind growing, just baren hard packed dirt and broken glass bottles everywhere.

Location: East end of North 1st Street, Lamesa, Texas.
