Cemetery is located north west of the old town of Bridgeport, Oregon within Baker County.
Cemetery is not maintained and is overgrown. Sign erected at Cemetery indicates it originated in 1860's. The cemetery is fenced on all four sides and contains two gates for entrance on the north east corner.
Cemetery contains 16 graves marked with headstones and four graves not marked with headstones. More graves may be present but were not located during visitation. Contact with the Baker County Clerk office revealed no records of burials at the cemetery were maintained in that office.
