Cabin Creek Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location:  Approximately 2 miles north of Mt Rogers High School

Directions:  From the junction of Highlands Pkwy (US Hwy 58) and Cabin Creek Ln (Rt 749) go 0.2 mile north on Cabin Creek Ln to cemetery on left side of road.

GPS Coordinates:  N36.6116 W81.5218

Surveyed by:  Mr. and Mrs. William Hensley 9 May 1992

Comments:  The cemetery is visible approx 500 ft up slope from the road. It was fenced and tended. An unverified story says, Lee Massie carred a dead child from Massie’s Gap during a blizzard. He couldn’t go any farther, so E.C. Osborne permitted him to bury this child on his farm. This became the first grave in the graveyard. No one remembers the grave location.
