Description.

This is a small rural cemetary in a pleasant pasture area. The stones are a variety of materials; primarily local Peach Bottom slate and local marble. There are a surprisingly large number of graves of Civil War veterans (compared to similar cemetaries in Maryland). One such marker appears to have been provided by the US Dept of War.

The slate stones near Pikes Peak Road are hand lettered.

Parking is limited to parking along the side of the road. However, Wiley Road is very lightly traveled.
