Anderson Cemetery



           

Location: on hill above Faber Hollow, off Fisher Ridge Road.

Directions: From Charleston: I-77 North, get off the Goldtown Exit 119. Turn right on Route 21 and drive .9 miles and make a left on Fisher Ridge road. Drive .7 and make a left on cement driveway, the Anderson Cemetery sign is approximately 15 feet from Fisher Ridge road (see pic). There’s 2 buildings, when you get to the building on the right, make a left (there’s no right), there’s a one lane dirt / gravel road on a steep mountain. Drive or walk approximately 1 – 1 ½ miles and the fenced cemetery is at the top of the mountain. The day I took the pics, the gate was closed so I parked on one side of the driveway and walked. Last summer (2010) when I saw the sign, the gate was open so I drove up to the building and talked with a gentleman. You can get a vehicle up there but he suggested a 4 wheel drive. If you like walking, it’s a good hike and there’s nothing up that road but the cemetery.

Each row starts on the left side of the gate entrance.
