This peaceful area of natural beauty was donated by Arthur Power, Farmington founder, from his original holdings for use as a non-denominational cemetery. The first person to die in Farmington was a Mr. Green, the village cobbler, who was interred here in 1825. Gravestone inscriptions reveal that many Farmington pioneers are buried here. The ancient Shiawassee Indian Trail originally passed through what is now the center of the cemetery.
