Old Cemetery is located on West Main Street in the Town of Phelps, Ontario County, New York.

It is estimated there are a thousand burials in this cemetery; some with no markers and some were marked with field stones.

Prior to 1939, when the burial ground was restored and stones reset, it was overgrown with brush and in an unkempt condition. It was cut with a scythe about once a year, and during this period many of the broken stones were destroyed.
