Sanders Burial Ground 

Take State Hwy. 3 out of Barnwell. Just before it intersects with hwy. 278, turn right on Fuller's Pond Rd. Continue for about 2 miles to a small branch. On the left is a dirt road leading into an area with forest on the left and an open field on the right with young pines. Continue up this road and around to the right. You will see a small patch of woods on the left. Sanders Burial Grounds is inside these woods. Please visit this site with love and care because efforts are being made to preserve the site.
