The Providence United Methodist Church cemetery is located about 1 mile off of the Chase High Road in Forest City, North Carolina in the southern end of Rutherford County. When traveling south on US 221A Hwy turn right onto the Chase High Road (2210) at the Key Largo Store in Sandy Mush, then turn left just past the stop light at the Chase Middle School onto the Providence Road (2146). The church and cemetery are off the road and on the right on the Providence Church Road (2217). Use the Google Map below to find its exact location.
Many unmarked or unknown graves contain former slaves. Veterans of the Civil War, WWI, WWII and the Korean War are also buried with honor in the Providence cemetery.. The part on the east side of the road through the cemetery once belonged to Henrietta Mills as a burying ground, but now belongs to the church.
