|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Barlow Cemetery is located on Hwy 70. It's on the road leading into Mammoth Cave National Park. It is fairly well kept and still open for burials.
Barlow Cemetery is a privately owned, family cemetery of approximately twenty burials dating from 1900 to the present. Most of the markers are granite commercial tablets, blocks and bevels. Other markers include irregularly shaped field stones and temporary funeral markers. There are headstones and footstones and the cemetery is clearly divided into family plots. The cemetery is located at the crest of a ridge which it shares with another African American cemetery, Zion Hill Baptist Church Cemetery. The cemetery landscape is grassed with a possible ornamental bush at its perimeter. Family names represented here are Barlow, Beck, Parrish and Amos.
Barlow Cemetery is regularly visited and there are numerous decorations. Plastic flower saddle arrangements adorn the commercial tablets and plastic sprigs have been planted in front of the headstones as well as around the burials. There are several decorative wooden crosses with artificial flowers and a few wreaths.
Barlow Cemetery is visible from the road. There is a gated access road which is too rough for many vehicles. Access to the cemetery requires a small walk.
