Abandoned Cemetery No. 1
This is an old abandoned African-American cemetery . Only two graves are marked, but there are many graves marked by rocks. The approximate size is one half acre. I am told a church once existed near this cemetery.
Driving directions: From Rosston, go west on Hwy. 278 (formerly Hwy. 4) toward Hope for about 2 1/2 miles. About 1/4 mile past Rd. 36, there is a logging road leaving the highway to the left in a curve. The cemetery is down this road about 1/4 mile on the left side of the road.
