County: Putnam
USGS Quad: Bancroft
Coordinates: 38.5713N  81.8011W
Maintained by: Unknown 
Land owner: Unknown
Date added to WVCPA register: June 2004
Condition of cemetery**: Good (October 2006)
Accessibility: This cemetery is located south of Paradise in Putnam County. To get there, take Low Gap road (CR 28) from Rt. 34, turning left onto County road 28/1 just over a mile in from 34. You will crest the top of the hill, and the cemetery will be visible across the fields to the left on the opposite hillside. Once past the crest of the hill you will come to a gravel road (28/3) on your left that cuts sharply back towards the cemetery hill. Follow that road, opening (and closing behind you!) the livestock gate as appropriate. There is good space to park and turn around fairly close to the cemetery gate. The gently-sloping grounds are fairly even and well-maintained, but always use caution in case there are any unexpected dips or holes in the ground where you might stumble.
** 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

Comments: 

     

Dates in Red are not inscribed on the tombstone and have either been Old Antioch Cemetery, Putnam Co., WV calculated based on death date or are as a result of research on the individual.

This cemetery is located at the site of the old, original Antioch Church. Though the church building is long gone, you will notice a grassy area towards the front/lower end of the cemetery where there are no burials. That was the location of the church building.
