Duane Albert in Old City Cemetery



Directions: When you enter Petersburg on Route 97, turn west or left at the first road, which is Lincoln Avenue. Go one block to the stop sign and turn left (south) on to Sixth Street. Follow Sixth Street up the hill a couple of blocks (as far as it goes) to Washington Street. You will see the cemetery on the left hand corner of Sixth and Washington Streets. This is an older cemetery, and although very well cared for, many of the stones are either illegible or nearly so.
