Contributed by Shirley Olson, Apr 21, 2001 [shirley32olson@yahoo.com]. Total records = 48.

Directions from Raleigh: From Interstate 40, take the Lake Wheeler Rd. exit and travel south about 8 miles until you come to the intersection of Optimist Farm Rd. and Lake Wheeler Rd. A hundred yards further south will bring you to the tidy brick church on the right side of the road, next to a pond. Behind the church is the cemetery.
Pleasant Hill Church Cemetery, owned by United Church of Christ, Rev. D.L. McCoy, Pastor. This is an African American congregation. Unfortunately, the cemetery is in a state of severe neglect, unkempt, and with graves scattered about at random. A number of graves are unmarked.
