Established 1927.

Old Paths Cemetery is located in the area of 73rd Ave and Thunderbird Road in Peoria. The area was known as Weedville. The cemetery is in an unincorporated part of the county encircled by the City of Peoria. Information about the Cemetery and Founder of Weedville, Rev. Ora Weed, can be found on the city of Peoria website (Historic Peoria Places, Weedville). Also, a book entitled Arizona Liars Journal, by Jim Cook, includes historical data about the family and area on page 59.

The Old Paths name was taken from a passage in Jeremiah, "ask for the old path, which is the good way and walk therein."

This is a private family cemetery, maintained by the Weed family members since around 1921.
The bell was originally on top of the Old Paths Chapel. It is rung annually in observance of Memorial Day during a gathering of family members.
