This small cemetery is located between Marsh and Midway Roads on Northwest Highway in Dallas, Texas, and is situated on the south side of the road next to an old apartment complex called Sherwood Forest. Though the cemetery sits back about 100 feet from the road and is not immediately visible, it is marked by two metal signs indicating the presence of a state historical marker and a metal sign bearing the name of the cemetery. There is a small gravel footpath leading from the street back to the cemetery grounds.
Parking in this area will be difficult. You may be able to find a vacant spot at the apartment complex adjacent to the cemetery, or you may have to park on a side street nearby. Be careful if you cross the busy Northwest Highway on foot!
