From downtown Dallas, TX, 25 miles south on Interstate 35, then US 67. On the south side of Midlothian, exit US 287 Business South into Midlothian. Just across the railroad tracks past downtown, turn right on FM 663 (also 9th St). After 5 miles, this will dead end into FM 875. Turn right. The Cemetery is just over one mile west, past Hopewell Baptist Church.
History: The land for the original cemetery was donated by Steven Washington Taylor, a nearby resident, before his death in 1882. It was for the community of Mountain. Peak, TX (no longer in existence). Additional land was donated by his heirs. More has been purchased. This is a private cemetery, overseen by the Mountain Peak Cemetery Board.
