To reach cemetery from Fort Lawn drive north on US Hwy 21 for about 4 miles, turn right or east onto Canal Road, which is the entrance road to Landsford Canal State Park. Go approx 1/2 mile and you will see a ranch house with a white fence around the property on the right. The cemetery is on the left across the street.

This is apparently an old church cemetery, which also is known as Mount Zion Cemetery. There are numerous cemeteries by that name in Chester County. It is situated in what used to be the small town of Landsford.

This cemetery is in fairly good shape, but somewhat overgrown with weeds and vines. All of the visible graves are documented, however there are many that are marked, yet have no writing or names. They are just stones. There are many Revolutionary soldiers and Civil War soldiers buried here.

There is a sign in this cemetery which explains how the graveyard and graves are protected by South Carolina Law, Section 16-17-600. Any person found guilty of any destruction will be strictly punished under this law.

Sharon Wilson and I walked this cemetery using digital cameras on Mar 03, 2007.
