Linville Cemetery

Location

Linville, Rockingham County, Virginia. From Harrisonburg take Route 42 north 3.7 miles and turn right on to Road 765 (Buttermilk Creek Road). Go 1.6 miles and turn left on to Road 753 (Kratzer Road). Go 1.0 miles and church/cemetery are on the right side of the road.
 

Notes

Previously known as Linville Congregational Christian Church Cemetery. Standing in the cemetery facing the church, the rows are from left to right and front to back. SECTION 1 (south side) is the oldest area. SECTION 1A is the Black area (south and towards the back of Section 1). SECTION 2 (middle). Section 3 (north side) is the newer area. J. Robert Swank made a notation in 1967 "there are other burials in this cemetery without markers." There are many burials in the Black area without markers. Mr. Andrew Temple in 1996 said there was only one grave left in the Black cemetery and it was for him.
