From Monaca drive south on Rte 51 to Monaca Road. Take Monaca Road up the hill turning onto Van Kirk Road and go to the end, about 2/10's of a mile. Walking through private property, follow the woodline until you see the cemetery on its edge.
This cemetery is associated with Van Kirk Lutheran Church. The cemetery is now overgrown and neglected. The only way through it is to follow the deer trails. The cemetery is small and hilly. Some of the area is steep with cliffs. There are only 16 stones (4 are veteran's markers with flags). Most of the stones are damaged.
I walked and read this cemetery on Jul 18, 2008. It includes all existing and legible stones or markers.- Liane Freedman
