Directions/Map Back to Top
From Paris Court Square, take 79 East toward Dover for approximately 7 miles. Turn left (North) on Buchanan Road and follow for approximately 3 miles. At this point, a tall monument reading "New Beaverdam Cemetery" will become visible straight ahead of you. Before the road curves to your right, take the dirt/gravel road extending to the left of the monument. Parking is better done at the Northern end of the cemetery on this secondary road. The cemetery will be on your right.

Travel time from Paris Court Square is approximately 10-15 minutes.

Condition Back to Top
The New Beaverdam Cemetery sits on a slight hill off of the Buchanan Highway, shaded by a handful of tall trees. It is a recently active cemetery, with about 75% of its interments in the last 25 years. Hardly any damage at all to its older stones and a wonderful effort of upkeep lend to its overall excellent condition.
