“Sinking Spring Cemetery,Abingdon,Va”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

We parked at the municipal parking lot and spent hours walking through Abingdon. First stop was this cemetery. It is an amazing place! There are historical plaques that are easy to see. Graves date back to Revolutionary War soldiers,and a special place dedicated to soldiers of the Civil War. Well kept, and very interesting.

“Nice Cemetery, but lost without the brochure”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

I visited this cemetery because I found a brochure for it at the Historical Society of Washington County Virginia. Without this guide, I would have been utterly lost, but at the same time, the map was vague and without walking all over the graves (which I am loathe to do in ANY cemetery), you are not quite sure what you should be looking at. The Grounds are well maintained and it is a quiet little spot just up from main street so the atmosphere is very pleasant.
