|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Directions: In Elderton, Armstrong County, Pennsylvania, at the intersection of U.S. Route 422 and Pennsylvania State Route 210, take PA 210 North, for 6.22 miles. You will see the Keystone Lake Boat Launch entrance, on your left. Pass it and take the next right turn onto W. Indiana St., which is between 100 and 200 yards past the Boat Launch entrance. Drive 0.37 miles into the small village of Atwood, PA and take the first right turn onto S. Jefferson St. From this turn, drive 0.15 miles to the cemetery, on the right.
There is a section, in the back, left, side, of the Atwood Cemetery, in Cowanshannock Township, that is called the "Meeting House." There are 86 people buried here, in this section, who were originally buried in Concord Cemetery, located in Plum Creek Township. This Concord Cemetery was moved from the original location along the Plum Creek, in Plum Creek Township, to the present location in Atwood Cemetery, in Nov. 1965. This Concord Cemetery was removed because of the Keystone Dam that was constructed, on Plum Creek, circa 1967-69. This Lake provides cooling water for the Shelocta, PA, Electric Generating Power Plant and it also provides some pretty darn good fishing.
Anyone, listed in Atwood, whose monument has the photo of the Keystone Lake, posted with it, is an individual who was buried under those waters, in Concord Cemetery and is now in the "Meeting House" section, in Atwood Cemetery.
