County: Jackson
USGS Quad: Ripley
Coordinates: 38.8133N  81.6462W
Maintained by: unknown
Land owner: unknown
Date added to WVCPA register: June 2004
Condition of cemetery**: Excellent (June 2004)
Accessibility: Located east of Ripley off Rt. 33, a very short distance down CR 26 that turns off to your right (coming from Ripley) and heads towards Gay.  The cemetery itself is fairly easily accessible, being just a short distance off the road with room to park on the shoulder opposite the cemetery.  The log stairs up the embankment to the cemetery are steep, and can be slippery in wet weather.  There can be a good amount of traffic moving fast on the road, so use caution when crossing to get to the cemetery entrance.

** Condition of cemetery as observed on the given date -
may not be representative of care at other times of the year
Scale: Excellent - Good - Fair - Poor - Abandoned
