New Holly Cemetery

Dillon County, South Carolina

In years past New Holly School existed. New Holly is located northeast of Dillon County, South Carolina, near Free State community. Jennifer Woodle Lupo notified me concerning this abandon cemetery. Near this cemetery was Platt Crossroads where the Centerville Road sign is located that leads to New Holly Cemetery.

From Main Street, Dillon and highway 34 go east 8 miles-turn left on Centerville Road-go mile bear left on Free State Road-fenced cemetery is on right on wooded area.
