Costello Cemetery, Potter County

(GPS Coordinates: 4136'2.47"N, 78 3'13.25"W)

Coming from Austin, at the T in Costello, turn left onto First Fork Road. Cemetery is on the left, .5 mile.
When the first photo was taken in 2008, this was a very derelict cemetery - broken stones, overgrown with weeds and brush.
A group of volunteers did a terrific job of cleaning it up in the summer of 2009 - they even added a sign!

Thank You!
