Holly Grove Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery

Surveyed and contributed by Lee Cook


The Church was built in 1901 and rebuilt in 1959. The Pastor on the cornerstone is the Reverend L. W. Washington. 

The Deacons are:

Part of the cemetery seems to be covered in Kudzu, I could see some tombstones in the Kudzu but couldn't reach them. Here's what I could see:
