Name:  New Hope Baptist Church Cemetery, Esmont

Date:  July 2007

Image Number:  CG094cdCG06

Comments:  New Hope Baptist Church is an African-American church founded in 1877 and located at 7725 Porters Rd., Esmont Virginia.  Its church cemetery contains approximately 137 gravestones and numerous unmarked graves or graves with illegible gravestones.  This cemetery adjoins New Green Mountain Baptist Church Cemetery of Esmont.

Directions to New Hope Baptist Church from Scottsville Museum:  Go West on Main Street and turn right on Valley Street.  Continue up Valley Street which becomes SR20.  Turn left on Irish Road (SR6) and travel 5.7 miles West.  Turn left on Porters Rd. (RT 627).  Drive 0.6 miles, and New Hope Baptist Church is on the left (7725 Porters Rd.; just past Yancey Elementary School).  The church’s cemetery is to the south east of the church building.

Following is a July 2007 listing of the extant gravestones at New Hope Baptist Church Cemetery as prepared by Rob Manoso, an intern at Scottsville Museum from the Institute for Public History at the University of Virginia.  Women are listed by their married names.  Also, asterisks (*) that appear before names denote veterans.  In 2007, there are over thirty graves marked with stones or temporary markers whose inscriptions are now illegible.
