Scott Cemetery
The Scott Cemetery is located on the old E. Y. Scott farm. Turn at Cooper's Chapel Baptist
Church onto Henley Hollow Road and travel about .9 of a mile. If there is no water in the
creek, it is better to walk the creek bed (walk back toward Cooper's Chapel Baptist Church)
until you get to a point where there is a large drop off in the creek bed. Leave the creek bed
and go past the rock wall that surrounded the yard of the house (you should see the ruins of
the house and chimney) and proceed to the ruins of the barn. The cemetery is on the steep
hillside north of the barn about 150 yards. The cemetery is grown up and very difficult to find.
