Directions from Washington PA: Go east on E Walnut St toward Highland Ave for 151 ft, take a slight left onto Highland Ave for 0.3 mi, continue onto Ridge Ave for 0.2 mi, turn right onto US-19 N/Murtland Ave and continue to follow US-19 N for 5.8mi, Chartiers Hill Cemetery will be on the right just past the junction with PA 519.

The well-maintained cemetery extends downhill from the church and remains an active burying ground. The church is frequently referred to in the area simply as “Hill Church”. Old cemetery records are reported lost and have not been available for inspection by genealogists for some years. This is a sad loss since we know there were burials in the churchyard for which stones were not placed or are no longer readable.

It is not known in what year the congregation of Chartiers was organized. It is probable there was no regular organization until Rev. John McMillan came. On his first visit to this region, in 1775, he preached at the house of John McDowell, on Chartiers Creek, on the fourth Sabbath of August. This is the earliest record of service at Chartiers.
