Cemetery notes and/or description:
This well-kept cemetery is near the end of a gravel, dead-end section of Pettigrew Road off of LaSalle Road in Durham.

Originally located on the north side of Crest Street, the 1068 graves were moved by the State Department of Transportation to New Bethel Memorial Gardens, Glenview Cemetery and Beechwood Cemetery for the expansion of the Durham Expressway.

When surveyed by Jean B Anderson and W A Waller in 1983, the New Bethel Church Cemetery was found to be maintained, in use and contained at least 75 of the moved graves, marked but many unidentified.

This church was also known as "Hickstown". Hickstown was the burial place for many blacks who worked in the cotton mill. However, many whites were buried here in the 1900's prior to World War I.
