Old German Church Cemetery (Lutheran Cemetery)
Volcano, Wood County, West Virginia

Lat: 39° 14' 08"N, Lon: 81° 17' 03"W

Take Rt. 50 East out of Parkersburg for about 16 miles. Turn right at the Mountwood Park/Volcano exit. Take the first right at the swimming area. Follow this road around the bend to the shooting range. Take the gravel road to the right, just across from the shooting range. The cemetery is on the hill.

The Church has not been used in many years, but the cemetery is still active. The property is now owned by Mountwood Park. Members of the Todd family oversee the maintenance of the cemetery.

This is a complete reading of all existing headstones from when I walked and transcribed this cemetery on Apr 01, 2002.
