Directions/Map Back to Top
From Paris Court Square, take 79 East toward Dover for approximately 9 miles. Turn right (South) on Sulphur Well Academy Road and follow for less than 1/2 mile. Turn right (Southwest) on Friendship Road and follow for approximately 100 yards, where a turn to the left up a dirt road will appear. If you reach the church, you have just missed it. Go up the dirt road (and BEWARE - this road is not easy to navigate in muddy conditions) and the cemetery will be on your right about about 40 yards.

Travel time from Paris Court Square is approximately 15-20 minutes.

Condition Back to Top
The Friendship Baptist Church Cemetery sits on a hill overlooking the present-day church. It is quaint and small which reflects truly upon the church's current condition. Being surrounded by heavy wood, it does suffer a lot of ground cover, but is not buried in leaves like some cemeteries can become. The stones are in good condition for their age. A subsequent visit to this cemetery after it was photographed found that the church had put a wire fence around the whole plot. It is in great condition.
