This cemetery is the possible site of Lee's Bethel, the island's first church. Next to the cemetery is the last of the island's once plentiful garden farms.

Tangiermen were famous for growing melons, filling their boats until just the gunnels were visible above the water, and sailing to Baltimore to sell their sweet fruits on the docks.
