The graves are located behind the church. Follow the walkway between the new and old buildings and you'll find two graves. Directly behind the Old Church is a small enclosure that's overgrown with boxwoods, it contains a family plot. Other graves aren't visible. The Church was established in 1852. During the Civil War the old structure was used for Hospital and Stables.


• Bristersburg Historic District, in southeastern Fauquier County, dates back to the early 19th century when the village first arose at the intersection of the main north-south route through the county, Carolina Road (Rte. 616), and the primary east-west route between Fredericksburg and Warrenton, Elk Run Road (Rte. 806). Today Bristersburg features a collection of mid-19th- to early 20th-century buildings, including three stores (one with a warehouse), a school, a blacksmith shop, and a handful of dwellings. Throughout the 19th century and much of the 20th, the village offered a concentration of needed services – from commercial, to educational, to
religious – for rural families in the area. During the Civil War, Bristerburg's Zoar Baptist Church (1852) was used as a stable and a hospital. Source: Department of Historic Resources, Virginia Gov.
