From I-435 and Shawnee Mission Parkway, take Shawnee Mission Parkway west to its end at K7. Take K7 south to 75th Street and turn west. Proceed west on 75th Street past Shawnee Mission Memory Gardens cemetery to the next street (Gleason). Cemetery is on southeast corner of 75th St and Gleason across from the Monticello Church.

The Monticello Union Cemetery was established in 1884, near to the site of the old Monticello Town site, in what was then Monticello Township. On May 5, 1936 the Monticello Cemetery District Association was formed to care for the cemetery, and now manages four beautiful cemeteries in the area. Although Monticello Township was disbanded and annexed to the cities of Lenexa and Shawnee recently, the cemetery district remains boundaries have not changed.

This cemetery is well tended to, however vandalism is a constant problem. Many stones are missing, in pieces, or illegible due to age and weathering. The cemetery is beaultifully decorated and flags are placed at each Veteran's grave on Memorial Day each year.
