Mt. Moriah No. 2 Cemetery - Black

Second location of Mt. Moriah Cemetery. Older cemetery located further south. Still used for burials. Cemetery expanded and chain link fence installed in 2003
Driving directions: From Upper White Oak Lake, go west toward Bluff City. In the sharp curve just before reaching Holleman Cemetery, turn left (go straight) on a dirt road. From the Nevada County line (which is not marked), go about 1/4th mile and turn left on a dim road. The cemetery is about 1/4 mile down this road.
