DIRECTIONS to Adkins Family cemetery on Flat Mountain, Monroe County, WV just outside Alderson, WV.
In Alderson, WV turn across the bridge and at the end of the bridge, take Route 3 into the town of Alderson. You will make a sharp right turn and will pass Lobban Funeral Home on the left side of the street. Shortly after you pass the funeral home, look for a sign that is on the right side of the road that says Flat Mountain Road. Turn left on Flat Mountain Road and follow this road for just about 2 miles and you will come to a fork in the road. At this fork in the road, stay right. After staying right at this fork in the road, go another 2.2 miles. You will come to Mountain View Baptist Church on the left side of the road. Turn around at this church.Once you have turned around at the church, go to the 2nd house on the right, it is a brown house with an unattached garage. (The first house is a white house directly beside the church) Between this brown house and garage, there is a gravel driveway. Take this gravel driveway. Go about 7/10th of a mile on this gravel road and you will come directly to the cemetery. Road is in good shape except for a raised bump in the road just past the house. The gravel road at this house appears to be a private driveway and is easily missed, but it is the road that leads to the cemetery. It is much easier if you go to Mountain View Baptist Church and turn around and go to this 2nd house on the right. Cemetery appears to be well maintained. There are several churches on Flat Mountain, just be sure you go to Mountain View Baptist Church to turn around.
