Christopher Strong, o­ne of the earliest pioneers in Dickson Count, owned over 1,000 acres along Jones Creek. Part of this property later became the Dickson County Poor Farm and Home. The cemetery sits atop the hill from the Old County House Bridge of Jones Creek. Most of the stones are broken, and have been piled up against an old cherry tree. o­nly 3 remain where they belong. This cemetery sits right beside the Old County House Road.
