Hope Cemetery

Oldest Hope tombstone

County: Kanawha
USGS Quad: Charleston East        Map
Coordinates: 38.36762N  -81.6218W
Maintained by: unknown
Land owner unknown
Date last visited May 2012
Condition of cemetery**: Fair-Poor
Accessibility: Easy Access. From I-77 take exit 102. If coming from the north, merge right onto Cresent Rd and take first right onto Mary St. If coming from the south, take left onto Garrison Ave, right onto Cresent Rd and left onto Mary St. After 0.1 mile, take right onto Picadilly St. This has sharp turn left (north) and then turn right to stay on Picadilly St. After the second right turn (about 400 ft), turn left onto Woodbine Ave. The paved road stops followed by a dirt road. Shortly thereafter there is a place to pull over at the cemetery entrance. [I originally approached Woodbine from the north via Albert St and had to back out because the road was only passable by a 4 wheel drive vehicle]. The cemetery has many family plot areas, many with iron fences surrounding them. Some are well kept, many are totally unattended with grass and weeds over knee deep and I'm tall. The cemetery is quite unorganized and I'm confident that I've missed some tombstones, especially because of the weeds and grasses. This cemetery needs some friends. The oldest Hope stone I found was that of Walter T Hope, 1873 - 1937.

Easy Access. From I-77 take exit 102. If coming from the north, merge right onto Cresent Rd and take first right onto Mary St. If coming from the south, take left onto Garrison Ave, right onto Cresent Rd and left onto Mary St. After 0.1 mile, take right onto Picadilly St. This has sharp turn left (north) and then turn right to stay on Picadilly St. After the second right turn (about 400 ft), turn left onto Woodbine Ave. The paved road stops followed by a dirt road. Shortly thereafter there is a place to pull over at the cemetery entrance. [I originally approached Woodbine from the north via Albert St and had to back out because the road was only passable by a 4 wheel drive vehicle]. The cemetery has many family plot areas, many with iron fences surrounding them. Some are well kept, many are totally unattended with grass and weeds over knee deep and I'm tall. The cemetery is quite unorganized and I'm confident that I've missed some tombstones, especially because of the weeds and grasses. This cemetery needs some friends. The oldest Hope stone I found was that of Walter T Hope, 1873 - 1937.
