Although no burials have occurred here since 1906, this small cemetery is well maintained. It is identified by a sign that hangs during the warm weather months. It is sometimes referred to as the "Old" Rogersville Cemetery, since the town's much larger Rosemont Cemtery, on the eastern end of Rogersville, is still in use today.


DIRECTIONS TO THE CEMETERY:
1) From Waynesburg, follow Route 21 West (West Roy Furman Highway) for approximately 7 miles to reach Rogersville.
2) Rosemont Cemetery will be on your right just before you enter the town.
3) Rogersville Cemetery is located on the western end of town, right along Route 21 in a sharp left hand turn, across the road from the Christian Church.
