CemeteryShank Cemetery
LocationFrom the corner of Route 33 West & Route 42 North in Harrisonburg, go West on Rt. 33 for 1.5 miles and turn left onto Route 910 (Garber Church Road). (Note: Route 910 is called Switchboard Road to the right.) Go 1/2 mile on Garber Church Road & turn left onto driveway. You will see cemetery with stone wall around it.
NotesThe cemetery is enclosed by a stone wall and is well-maintained. Notations in "Remarks" column were provided by Mr. Swank. In 1967 J. Robert Swank noted "There are many unnamed graves in the plot." In 1931 John W. Wayland wrote "Prof. Harry Brunk tells me that this was the old graveyard of Weaver's Church. There are places in the enclosure, old stones without inscriptions or with lettering illegible."
