Pleasant Grove Cemetery

 

Location

South of Mt. Crawford, Rockingham County, Virginia. From downtown Harrisonburg, take Route 11 south for approximate11 miles. Cemetery and church are on the right at the intersection of Route 11 and Route 690 (Summit Church Road).
 

Notes

The church is now called Pleasant Grove Victory Chapel. It was also known as the Whitsels EUB Church. In 1967 J. Robert Swank noted "There are many unmarked & unnamed graves. On the farm of Peter Whitesel in 1824 a log church was erected, the first for the United Brethren in Virginia. This was replaced by a frame building in 1874 which was replaced by the present church building in 1893 at a cost of $1,000.00." Recorded cemetery starting with first row by Route 11 (east) to back (west) and headstones from left (south) to right (north).
