Directions/Map Back to Top
From Paris Court Square, take 79 East toward Dover for approximately 19 miles. Cross the Tennessee River on the Scott Fitzhugh Bridge into Stewart County. Once you reach the foot of the bridge, there is a sign indicating Gray's Landing to the left. Turn left. The road is dirt, but is normally graded well year-round. Turn right at the first chance, and the cemetery will be on your left, looking over the water.

Travel time from Paris Court Square is approximately 25-30 minutes.

Condition Back to Top
The Gray's Landing Cemetery is located on a hill overlooking the present-day Gray's Landing, which historically was much farther back from the banks of the Tennessee River before TVA dammed the river. The Gray's settled this land shortly after Stewart County was organized. Once the land West of the river was annexed and organized by the state, they ran a ferry boat to across the river to Henry County. The present-day landing is used as a recreational boat ramp, campground and fishing spot, as part of the Land Between the Lakes National Park. Consequently, the cemetery is tended well and in excellent condition.
