near the intersection of Highways 163 and 157 in St. Clair County outside Centreville in East St. Louis City
Unfortunately, as of May 2011, the cemetery is overgrown with weeds, and St. Clair County officials were unable to determine who owns the cemetery.
It is believed to be an African American cemetery that was dedicated in 1903.
