Clendening Cemetery on Cable Hollow Road, is sheltered from the narrow lane by an embankment and tucked into the woods on the crest of a hill.
|The sign, parallel to the road up on the bank, is quite ineffective to a new visitor. It's possible to drive by without noticing this small cemetery.
Look instead for a line of big old maple trees, all about the same age, on the left enbankment at the edge of the road - these define the south edge of the grounds.
Driving directions from the Hickory Street bridge in Warren: Drive east on Pennsylvania Ave W/US-6 (business route) to Market Street. Turn left on Market Street and drive north through Warren, North Warren, and past Warren State Hospital on US 62. Drive straight through the intersection at Russell. Watch for the sign to the village of Akeley on the right. Make a slight right onto Akeley Road. In Akeley, follow Cable Hollow road east (about 5 miles total to the cemetery).
At the Cable Hollow Golf Course, bear right at the Y-intersection. At the Y-intersection of Cable Hollow Road and Mill Road, bear left to continue on Cable Hollow. The cemetery will be on the left (north side of the road). If you come to the intersection of Robin Hill Road, you have passed it (turn around and drive 1/4 mile west).
A stroll through the cemetery...
|While the cemetery was incorporated in 1893, many of the stones predate that year.
The oldest graves are clustered on the small hillock closest to the road.
Newer stones are found further north along the edges of the grounds.
