Directions from Washington PA at Murtland Ave and I-70/79, take I-70/79 north for 2.5 miles, take exit for I-79 South toward Morgantown for 13.6 mi, take exit 19/Ruff Creek (Pa-221)/Jefferson for 0.2 mi, turn Left on Washington Rd (US-19) for 0.4 mi, cemetery is on the right.

There is little known about the Bethlehem Baptist Cemetery. The DAR transcript described the cemetery as "in very good condition, both stones and grass." The earliest burial recorded by the DAR was 1839.

This data was collected by the DAR and found in the genealogy section of the Washington PA library. The data is from 1937 so the burial records may not be complete.
