BEREA CEMETERY

Berea Cemetery is adjacent to Berea Christian Church, alongside the highway between Alexander and Ashland. It lies six miles from each community.  The Berea church congregation was organized in 1852 as the church of Christ on Indian Creek, and was using a frame building by 1855. In 1924 the present red brick structure was erected. The adjoining cemetery appears to date from at least as far back as 1825 when 6 month old Amelia Robinson was interred. This child's tombstone ranks among the earliest to be found in Morgan County. There are no known burial plot records for the older part of Berea Cemetery. The newer portion of the cemetery has been surveyed and laid out in lots. There is a small endowment fund for maintenance purposes and the cemetery is kept in excellent condition.
