Directions/Map Back to Top
From Paris court square, take Highway 79 East toward Dover for approximately 16-17 miles to Highway 119. Turn right (Northwest) on Highway 119 and follow for approximately 1 and 1/2 miles to Cypress Road. Turn right (East) on Cypress Road. After about 1 mile, a fork will appear in the road with Ratteree Road. Take this fork (to the left) and follow for approximately 1 mile. After that maile, start looking to your left for an access to the cemetery. We're not sure if the sign was visible from Ratteree Road.

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

Condition Back to Top
The Ratterree Cemetery sits a bit back from Ratteree Road, surrounded mostly on three sides by woods. Its location is very peaceful and removed from the noise of society. Size is large for such a remote cemetery, but lends to the belief that it started as only a family plot and soon became a major community burial ground. It is still quietly active. The cemetery seems to benefit from regular care and only shows only a few damaged stones. Overall, condition is excellent.
