Take Gleeson Rd. north from Gleeson about 3 miles to the ghost town of Courtland. Turning right off Gleeson Rd, the cemetery is about .3 miles down a 2-track dirt road. The cemetery is extremely hard to find and we were only able to after getting directions & a hand drawn map from a local history buff! There are reportedly 85 graves in all from Arizona Death Records, but we found only one wooden cross and one cement grave cover with a double, flat headstone on our visit.

Courtland is another town started in the early 1900's due to the Copper mining in the area and like the other mining towns, when the mines played out, so did the town. When we were there in the summer of 2011, all that remains of the town are a few collapsing brick walls and some foundations.
