Take North Drive just off of 89A and follow the short road to a dirt parking area. You can park right outside the cemetery's gate.
There's plenty of cactus and scrub brush and rocks all over this area. Be very careful when walking around.
One of the first graves you'll see is one for Nika and Margaret Groseta, family members of some of the founding settlers in the towns Jerome, Clarkdale and Cottowood. The date on the headstone is 1916, but one doesn't know if that's the date of birth or the date of death.
There are iron fences surrounding many burial plots, and there are many that aren't marked any longer. And as in many abandoned cemeteries, the headstones that are there are difficult to read and most are completely gone.
Earliest Burial: 1/1/1904
Latest Burial: 1/1/1916
