Did you know we have 2 small cemeteries in our neighborhood? The cemetery that most people know about, it is located across from the fire department. It is known as the Fuller-Kane-Smith Cemetery.

This cemetery is located on Route 99, across the street from the Howard County Fire Station. There are 12 memorials. 4 family names are on the stones, Fuller, Kane, Smith and Snowden. The oldest burial dates back to 1890, most recent 1932. Some of the stones in this cemetery are hard to read and falling over.

Tip: do not attempt upright or move the stones. The stones can be fragile and easily break, in addition they are heavy and you could hurt yourself.
