From Hiawatha go West for 9 miles on Highway 36. At the junction with Highway 75, turn South and go 12 ½ miles to 105th Street, turn West and go 1 ½ miles. The Cemetery is on the Southeast corner.
This Cemetery was at the site of the old town of Powhattan which was on the James Lane Trail, and the stage route West. Once the railroads came this town slowly disappeared. The new town of Powhattan came into being and is several miles to the Northeast.
