Historical Marker
     This land has been used as a burial ground since the 1860s. Rebecca Hart Williams Little (1818-1891), a pioneer who came to this area in the 1830s, formally deeded the property for church and school purposes in 1871. The earliest marked grave is that of Harlan Lindley (1845-1871). Others interred here include pioneer settlers; veterans of the Civil War, World War I, and World War II; many infants and children; and Rebecca Little. The adjacent one-room Lebanon School, razed in 1945, provided educational opportunities to generations of local children.
