Bethel (Crossroads) Cemetery was originally for the Afro American population of Huntington. My understanding is there are several whites buried there also. Was started by the McClain Funeral Home. My understanding is the original records no longer exist There appear to be numerous unmarked graves. The cemetery is in poor condition with brush and trash all through it.

From US 60 East in Huntington, WV take Arlington Blvd. to Norway Ave..  Turn Right onto Norway Ave. and go to the top of the hill.  Now turn Left onto Bethel Street and go to the end.  The cemetery has a locked gate but you will be able to get through it.  Follow the path up the hill to the main part of the cemetery.  There will also be graves on your Right as you go up the hill to the main part of the cemetery.
