Whitevale Cemetery

Original Land: Owned by the Major family

The Whitevale Cemetery, established in 1832, is located on Whitevale Road just east of the central village.  The land where the cemetery sits was originally owned by the Major family (Whitevale was originally called Majorville after John Major).  The cemetery stones reveal a few clues to the past residents of Whitevale; the stones suggest that residents stayed in Whitevale for many generations raising their families and large elaborate stones suggest some residents were wealthy.
