From Paris Court Square, take 79 East toward Dover for approximately eight miles. Turn right (Southeast) on Beaverdam Cove. The cemetery is in the woods on your left marked by a sign and is accessed by a path.

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

Condition Back to Top
The Old Beaverdam Cemetery sits just off of the present-day Highway 79. Its closest neighbors are three rather nice homes on Beaverdam Cove. The surrounding woods seems to isolate the cemetery from the near highway's noise quite well. This cemetery does lack regular care it seems, as brush is above ankle height in some places and seems quite prone to snake infestation. While we were not bitten on our visit, we did notice a couple snakes moving around in the vicinity. Due to lack of regular care and age, this cemetery's overall condition is fair.
