From Route 4, take a left onto the Back Falls Road/Mt Blue High School Road At the "y" by the high school, go straight. Cemetery is about 1.5 miles past the high school on the left on a knoll with a stonewall in front. Cemetery is well-kept. Many, many old unreadable stones. Many unmarked graves. Probably one of the oldest in Farmington.
