In Travelers Rest, driving south on N Main Street, turn right or west onto McElhaney Road. The cemetery is to your left just as you turn, beside the church.

This cemetery is owned and maintained by the First Baptist Church.

It appears to have been established in the early 1900s, judging from the stones.

I walked and read all existing and legible headstones and markers in this cemetery on Jan 22, 2004.
