Search Brake Hill Cemetery:

The Brake Hill Cemetery is located on the Southwest side of the Industry Road ( Rt #43 ). There is no sign marking the cemetery. Located on a slight rise above the road, it is barely visible when foliage is out. The driveway entrance is a quarter mile West of the intersection of the Branns Mill Road and Route # 43. And, one mile East on route #43 from the sharp turn where the Pike Cemetery is located.

Many of the stones are weather worn and discolored making them almost impossible to read.

There are several fieldstones set on edge among the rows of graves suggesting unidentified burials.

The cemetery is well maintained and surrounded by a metal fence in good condition.

The origin of the name is unknown. There are no families by either name in the cemetery. There is no steep topographical feature nearby that would suggest a "brake" is required to slow a vehicle whether horsedrawn or otherwise!
