Cemetery Status: Inactive

The cemetery is shown on the DOT map at approximately this location, although the map suggests it may be as much as 0.3 mile to the south of this point. However, the enormous cedar and the rise on which it stands provide strong evidence that this may be a cemetery. The area surrounding this point has been heavily logged and disturbed, whereas the cedar has been growing for many years.
