From Doswell, go west on Doswell Road (Route 688) for .6 miles you until you reach Mount Hope Church Road. Turn onto Mount Church Road and go north/northwest for .4 miles then west for .1 miles until you reach the West Wind Farm or 11374 Mount Hope Church Road. Turn onto gravel road and go north for about 50 yards. The cemetery is on the east side of the road.

This is a small, well kept, family cemetery. The day I was visiting the cemetery, the person who was taking care of the property said that when the current owner bought the property, the cemetery was being neglected and overgrown. The present owner proceeded to clean the little cemetery up.The cemetery was started in 1870 with the last burial occured in 1957.

I walked and read this cemetery on Jul 08, 2011.
