There was once a church here, but there is no evidence of it any more.
It is well kept, no fence, but a lot of the stones have been destroyed over time.
It is just around the corner from Antioch Cemetery. It is said that both of these Methodist Church cemeteries came from a split in the congregation of one church.

If you know of someone buried in Center Grove Cemetery, or can identify any of the unknown headstones, please email me.
