From Wakefield Corner, at the intersection of Highway 3 and Route 204, go 1.8 north/northeast on Route 204 until you come to the Birthplace Monument entrance, go around the circle and up the paved road for 1 mile, not sure of direction. There is a parking area across from the cemetery for parking. The cemetery is on the south side about 20 feet from the road.
This is an historical cemetery. It is situated in the southwest corner of the 'George Washington Birthplace National Monument' area just south of the Potomac River near Bridges. This cemetery is the burial site for George Washington's Father, Grandfather, Great-Grandfather, and other relatives. The cemetery is well preserved.
In 1930, an effort was made to put a brick wall and put new tombstones in the burial site. Today, the cemetery is property of the US Park Service and can be visited during the day.
This is a complete reading of all existing and legible headstones from when I visited this burial site on Feb 16, 2008.- Anne Braun
