The Madisonvillle Cemetery

For hundreds of years, the Madisonville Cemetery has been the final resting place for those who lived in the Madisonville area. Several large oak trees grace the corners of the property, and the many graves, some with large headstones, some with small, tell the story of the people who came, started families, helped make Madisonville what it is today, then passed on.

Here are some pictures. Click on the images to make them larger.

The Town of Madisonville recently gained legal ownership of the cemetery after some debate over who actually owned the property.
