From Interstate 270, go to exit 18 then turn and go 1 mile north on Ridge Road, then turn and go west on Observation Road until you reach Royal Crown Rd turn and go 1/4 mile until you reach Milestone Manor Road go west on Milestone Manor Road until you reach Hawks Nest Lane, turn and follow the road until you reach the cemetery. The cemetery is located between two houses on south side of road.
It is a small well kept, family cemetery. In 1798, the Waters Family built a house called Pleasant Fields. Thus the reason for the name. The cemetery is about 1/4 mile from the house, and for many years was neglected with no care.
In 1997, a group of Boys Scouts cleared the cemetery and the company of the housing subdivision agreed to take of the cemetery. Today, the cemetery has a black iron fence around it and it is kept up.
