Tweetsie Railroad Cemetery
Boone, Watauga County, North Carolina

Lat: 36° 10' 16"N, Lon: 81° 38' 54"W

Contributed by Carl W Dykes, Nov 06, 2006 [cwdykes@charter.net]. Total records = 110.

Tweetsie Railroad Cemetery is located at the Tweetsie Railroad Amusement Park on U.S. Highway 321 about 3.5 miles south of Boone and north of Blowing Rock. It is on the west side of the highway across from the Middle Fork Church.

The cemetery is a prominent part of the park. The park closes seasonally at the end of October, however there are some functions within the park which continue and there are usually employees nearby.

The cemetery is in excellent condition and is well maintained. The amusement park is privately owned. It would be difficult to separate the history of the park from that of the cemetery. The park can be contacted at 1-828-264-9061.

There were a few stones which were deceased children that I could not read to any certainty, otherwise, this is complete.

This cemetery may have had another name but I have been unable to determine what that name might have been.

I completed reading and transcribing this cemetery from all existing and legible headstones and markers on Oct 30, 2006.
