This cemetery is located along Route 145, just past the intersection with the Oak Hill Durham Road in the Town of Durham. It is situated in a field about .5 mile in from the road and is surrounded by a stone wall. Groundhogs have a den in the plot itself and there a quite a few burrow openings which have undermined the stability of headstones, otherwise the cemetery is well tended.
