Condition Back to Top
The Walker Cemetery sits on what could be described as a cul-de-sac or roundabout in the present-day area of Antioch, near Antioch Harbor Road. The grass around the cemetery seems to be tended, but the cemetery itself is surrounded by trees and covered by old growth brush. Most stones are broken in some way and laid up against a tree. Some footstones remain and are in their original position, which may be the only indicators of the grave locations. It is the opinion of this author that the Walker cemetery is not tended at all or has not been in years.
