Travel north on River Road in Alva to Cemetery Road. Turn right onto Cemetery Road near a creek. The road divides with huge, old oak trees in the center. Drive through the orange grove until the paved road ends. The cemetery is on the right.

This is a lovely cemetery in a rural setting, and is surrounded by a chain-link fence. on Cemetery Road outside of town. It is owned and maintained by the town of Alva and currently active.
