MACRAE CEMETERY
Hope Mills, Cumberland County, NC

I read in the paper on Jan. 13, 2001 that the Key Club of South View High School was cleaning up an abandoned cemetery. This cemetery is in bad condtion with many broken headstones I had to piece some of them together just to read them, and you should either walk the mile or have a good 4 wheel drive to get to it. Directions: If you are driving South on I-95 get off exit 41, make a right at the end of the ramp. This is Rt 59 (Hope Mills Rd), go down to the traffic light of Cameron Rd. Make a left onto the dirt road. The road splits, and you need to be on the very left hand side of the dirt road before the ditch. Follow this down to the railroad tracks. Take your first Left before the train tracks, its more of a grass road the dirt. Do not take the second dirt road closest to the tracks, that just takes you down to the river.
