Mount Pleasant Baptist Church Cemetery, Keene

Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church Cemetery, Keene

Name:  Mount Pleasant Baptist Church Cemetery, Keene

Date:  August 2006

Image Number:  CG086cdCG06

Comments:  The Mount Pleasant Baptist Church Cemetery is located in Keene, Virginia, just northwest of Scottsville.  The church inherited the cemetery from the Gardner family when they moved to the adjacent land in 1963.  The Gardners had previously used the graveyard as their family cemetery.  As of August 2006, the cemetery contained approximately 107 gravestones.   Many of the graves at the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church Cemetery are marked by wooden crosses and do not include identification information.  At this time, no information is available about the names of the people buried in those graves.  Also, approximately 12 of the graves with stone markers are either not photographable or illegible.

Directions to Mount Pleasant Baptist Church Cemetery from the Scottsville Museum:  Head West on Main Street and take a right onto Valley Street.  Travel North on State Route 20 about 4.5 miles.  Turn left onto Esmont Road, SR712.  Continue straight about one mile until you arrive at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, which is on the right side of the road.  The cemetery is to the left of the church.

Following is the August 2006 listing of the extant gravestones at Mount Pleasant Baptist Church Cemetery as prepared by Gretchen Calcagni, an intern at Scottsville Museum from the Institute for Public History at the University of Virginia.  Asterisks (*) that appear before names denote veterans.
