Howell Homestead Cemetery is located on west fork of Otter Creek in
southeast LaRue County. It was visited by William T. Smith and copied
in early 2000. It has at least twenty fieldstones that have no inscription.
Many of the people buried here are believed to be early pioneers. Only
two readable stones and the cemetery is overgrown with bushes and cedar
trees. To find it, take Hwy. 210 southeast toward Campbellsville, turn
left on Herbert Howell Road. Go down Salsman Hill and turn right at
the bottom of the hill. Continue on that road until it dead ends at
a farm gate and the cemetery is up the hill to the left of the gate.
