Thank you for visiting the website of Walnut Grove Cemetery in Bluefield, West Virginia. This site is a resource for anyone with relatives or friends buried at Walnut Grove and for anyone who would like to support the Walnut Grove Trustees’ efforts at preserving the sentimental, historical and civic heritage of this cemetery.
A Brief History
Walnut Grove Cemetery was begun in the 1860s by a group of early Bluefield families: the Baileys, Higginbothams, and Davidsons. Today it is operated by a group of Trustees who are dedicated to its preservation and upkeep. It is accessed by Hancock Street or North Street, and located in between College Avenue and North Street.
How the Cemetery Functions
The support of Walnut Grove descendants and local philanthropists is the only yearly income to our modest trust managed by First Century Bank, and is the sole source of money for mowing and maintenance costs. The Trustees appreciate all donations, large and small, as they help to ensure the care of the final resting place of our loved ones. Please donate to the cemetery if you are able.
