Long Description:
The cemetery is located in an industrial area at the southwest corner of Zodiac at Virgo, east of Denton Drive and north of Walnut Hill Lane. This small cemetery contains about 15 graves. The cemetery grounds are surrounded by a chain link fence and the gates are locked; however, the small area is apparently tended regularly as the area is neatly mowed and weeded.
