New Hope Cemetery-Bodcaw

This small cemetery is located near the Hempstead Co. line on County Rd. 5. On some early maps, this is called Ebenezer, not to be confused with the large Ebenezer Cemetery near Bluff City.
Driving directions: From the Nevada-Hempstead county line on Hwy. 278, go a short distance into Hempstead Co. and turn left on a gravel road. Go about 1.5 miles and the cemetery will be on your left on a hillside.
