From Parkersburg, take Rt. 68 through Lubeck. Turn left onto Wadesville Road by the Ohio Valley Speedway. The cemetery is about 2 miles out Wadesville Road. It is right next to the road on the left side. There is a sign at the entrance.
The sign at the entrance to the cemetery says that it was founded in April 1847. The last burial in this cemetery was in 1910.
The cemetery is located in an open field that didn't appear to have been mowed in some time. The stones are in good condition considering there age. I do not know who owns the property.
