Shrewsbury CEMETERY


Located in Shrewsbury, Kanawha Co., WV. On Rt. 60 in Shrewsbury going southeast, turn right at the car wash. Cross railroad tracks and turn left just after crossing tracks at baseball field. Turn right at first street, which is a dirt road, at end of baseball field. Cemetery sits on the right around 100/150 feet on right. It was very over grown and a tree was growing over the graves. I was told this used to be a large cemetery but there are only three markers and I could not see any signs of any other graves. A coal company had just bought the baseball field and had a lot of heavy equipment sitting behind the fence that surrounds the baseball field.
