Search Toy Cemetery:

Toy Cemetery is located in Washington Township in Armstrong County, Pennsylvania. The name "Toy Cemetery" was given to me by a local person, although I saw only one individual named TOY buried in the cemetery. The most common surname seems to be WOLFE. There are about 50 marked graves.

Directions: From the town of Adrian, travel east on Reesedale Road all the way to the Power Plant. I'm not sure of the distance, but it is perhaps five miles. Reesedale Road dead-ends at the power plant. As you drive straight toward the power plant on the concrete Reesedale Road, just before you get to the entrance of the plant there is a nice blacktop road going off to the right just before you get to the large pile of coal. Turn right onto this road. The cemetery is 0.1 miles on the right. Look for the small white sign with black letters which says "Cemetery Access Only."

There is plenty of room to park on this main blacktop road, but there is a significant walk up to the cemetery. I drove my car up the dirt road to the cemetery. Tree branches on the dirt road which could scratch your car. The dirt road is extremely bumpy in spots, and the bumps are not visible as you are driving along. The road loops around at the top just before the cemetery. When you drive down the hill, the front of your car may ground out when it hits the main asphalt road.

The dirt road passes through woods, but the cemetery itself is in a small clearing in the woods. There is a large spruce tree in the cemetery, otherwise, there is manicured grass growing in it. There are a large number of small gravestone which have only a person's name on them, no DOB or DOD. A local person told me that the individuals from nearby Ambrose Cemetery were moved here.
