St. Michael's Church & Cemetery

St. Michael's Reformed Church



Location

South of Bridgewater, Rockingham County, Virginia. From Harrisonburg take Route 42 South for approximately 8 miles and turn left onto Route 699 (Centerville Road). Go 1.3 miles on Route 699 and turn left onto St. Michael's Lane. Go 2/10ths mile & church/cemetery on left side of road.
 

Notes

Well maintained. Cornerstone on church reads 'St. M. C. 1876'. In 1967 J. Robert Swank noted "there are indications of many unmarked graves." Rows are recorded from gate (front) to back & facing stone inscriptions, from left to right (south to north).
