Images of Fannin Cemetery
Drive from the square 3.2 south on Whitesville Rd. Look for a short dead-end road on left (east) 100 ft before Pegasus Parkway enters on the right (west). Turn on this road. About 75 ft from Whitesville, the road is closed by a locked gate. The cemetery is approximately 600 ft farther east right a the tree line.
This cemetery has been badly vandalized, with most of the tombstones brown and laying on their side.
