In Travelers Rest, turn onto Roe Ford Road near Furman University Golf Course and follow the signs, approximately 4 miles. Forestville is located on the corner of Keeler Mill and Old McElhaney Road.

This cemetery is owned and maintained by the Forrestville Baptist Church.

It appears to have been established in the early 1900s, judging from the stones, and is still in use.

I walked and read all existing and legible headstones and markers in this cemetery on Jan 31, 2004.
