Brooke Cemetery
Wellsburg, Brooke County, West Virginia

Lat: 40° 17' 15"N, Lon: 80° 36' 19"W

From WV Route 2, turn East onto 23rd Street. Cemetery Entrance is at the end of 23rd (about 2-3 blocks). Contact: Bill Conkle, 304-737-0075.

There are many overturned stones. The road through the cemetery is extremely narrow and the cemetery is on a bank starting on the east edge of downtown Wellsburg. Impassible during the winter months. Some very sharp curves, so I suggest nothing larger than a minivan. The cemetery relies on and is in need of financial contributions.
