Graniteville Cemetery



Graniteville Cemetery

Graniteville, Nevada County



Graniteville is roughly 18 miles east and slightly north of Malakoff Diggins State Park.  It is reached via the North Bloomfield - Graniteville Rd.  The route is a gravel road.  It appears the "locals" ignore the fact it is a dusty gravel route, and a "newby" may be a little intimidated and find the venture long and slow.  The little community of Graniteville is just beyond the cemetery about a quarter of a mile and ever so charming.




Crosses mark the graves of unknown persons buried in this mountain cemetery.
