Cemetery

 Dean Family Cemetery

Location

Swift Run Gap, Elkton Area, Rockingham County, Virginia. After leaving Park Entrance at Swift Run, travel 2.4 miles north on the Skyline Drive, then turn left into Dean Mountain Cemetery. A paved parking lot is on the right after making the left turn. This would be at Milepost 63.2 as noted in Shenandoah National Park interpretive guide.
 

Notes

Cemetery is well maintained. In the 1960s the D.A.R. recorded this cemetery and at that time, made a notation that there were "many fieldstone markers." There is a stainless steel flagpole which was placed in the cemetery in 2002.

Survey Date and Recorder November 2002
