Directions:From the post office in center of Houschton, GA take HWY 53 South for 1.3 miles to Jackson Trail Road (the street sign is a white concrete pillar and is hard to see so watch for it.). Turn left onto Jackson Trail road. At 1 mile on the right is an old gist mill. At 4 miles is a small dirt road on the left (it's hard to see so just before you get to 4 miles on your odometer start watching). Turn in on dirt road. The dirt road passes a couple of trailer homes and it looks to be a dead end road. The road turns into a grass track.
Drive next to the fence for about 1/10 of a mile and you'll spot the cemetery on the left up the side of the mountain.
The people in this cemetery are listed as "Center Methodist Church Cemetery" in "Jackson GA Cemetery Records by James & Betty Mathis".
