St. JOSEPH'S CEMETERY
Cabell County, West Virginia


Old St. Joseph Detail List

Latitude: N 38. 245
Longitude: W 082  31. 093
Elevation: 602 feet
Accuracy: 17 feet


Located in the East End of Huntington, WV. in the Guyandotte Section.  Take Route US 60 into Huntington.  Turn Right onto Bridge Street (Rt. 2) and go to the first Red Light.  Turn Right onto Main St. and go past where the Flood Wall starts.  Now turn Left onto the first street that that goes through the Flood Wall.  Take this street and go over the railroad track.  After the railroad track turn Left onto the first street you come too.  Go up the hill and the cemetery will be on your Right. 

The cemetery is not fenced but has very little upkeep by the Huntington Park Board.  Over the years the cemetery has had a lot of vandalism with markers being broken and knocked down.  Part of the cemetery is back in the woods and is overgrown with weeds and brush.

There are a lot of unmarked graves and markers that can't be read.  It is also said that several graves were moved to other cemetery because of the condition of the cemetery.
