Sign commemorating the former town of Lilly.

Lilly, a small community on the Bluestone River, was removed due to construction of the Bluestone Dam in 1949. Remains from 149 graves were exhumed and relocated. Remnants of the foundations of a church, school, and homes can be seen at the former townsite.
