West Grove Plantation cemetery was destroyed by about the 1920s. The location is now:

Belle Haven Country Club
6023 Fort Hunt Rd
Alexandria, VA 22307-1204

This was formerly Fairfax County until Alexandria City County was created.

The West Grove Plantation house was located near where the clubhouse of the Belle Haven Country Club stands today. The cemetery was located on the grounds near the house. This was the plantation of Maj. John West who died in 1716. In the 1740s it was owned by Hugh West. The plantation house stood on this land until it was burned to the ground by federal troops retaliating against the owner's sons for serving as officers on General Robert E. Lee's staff. No house occupied this land again until the first house was built in the Belle Haven residential community at 6041 Woodmont Road and the Belle Haven Country Club which opened in 1923.
