It is located near Red Bridge on the Kinzua River off of Route 68 on Longhouse Scenic Drive, on the east side of Hwy, which is in the Allegheny National Forest across from the Red Bridge Campground.
Earliest know burial was 1849 and the latest burial was around 1867. There are many unidentified burial sites. The three graves are located above elevation 1371, which was above the reservoir level, so it was not one of the cemeteries moved when the dam was built, but it was still part of the Kinzua Dam and Allegheny Reservoir project.
The area of Lone Pine encompasses 40 square feet. At one time the little cemetery was in danger from a large, rotting, 130 yr old White Pine. Thanks to the efforts of the prison crew from the Federal Corrections Institution in McKean County, the King David Post of the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Kane, and many Forest Service employees, this historic site is now a serene resting place for the occupants below.
