Cemetery notes and/or description:
Corner of Route 617 (Providence Road) and Routh 631 (Poor House Lane) approximately 4 miles south of Millers Tavern and 0.4 miles southeast of Rt. 620.

From Penelope --
Memories reawaken as the building comes into view standing stalwart and dignified atop the knoll. Time-faded bricks radiate a becoming rosy hue from the setting sun -- brick which my grandfather [Josiah S. Nunn], as a young boy, helped to mold from native red clay. The tin roof, weathered to a soft patina, is unadorned by steeple or belfry but dwarfed by twin chimneys, one on either side. Tall, narrow windows, clear and small-paned, stare unobstructed by shutter of shade. A cracked and crumbling cement walk runs from foot-worn front steps for a short distance to end abruptly, leading nowhere. The simple inscription, Providence M.E. Church, is etched on the plate above the double front doors. The yard is unlandscaped and barren of grass until it slopes and blends into a cemetery, green carpeted and thickly strewn with stones bearing names dear and familiar to me.
