|Condition of cemetery**:||Poor (February 2009)|
From Point Pleasant, West Virginia, follow Rt. 62N to CR 1-1, Potters Creek Road. Travel Potters Creek Road for approximately 3/4 mile to the first barricaded road on the left side of the road. This is near the area of the "Storage Bunkers". Park near Potters Creek Road at the first barricade on the left. Follow the old road to the end (North, approximately 1200 yards). The road will start a gradual turn to the right (East).
At this point veer slightly NW for approximately 100 yards until a deep ravine and small creek are found. Once across the creek, travel 3/4 of the distance up the mountain. The cemetery is slightly to the right (East), approximately 400'. An alternate, easier route is to cross the field behind the Kirkland Memorial Gardens, going to the old bridge abutment then on up the hill. When the leaves are off the trees, you can use the Mason County School barn as a point of reference - the back of it is easily visible from the cemetery.
